Faith-based Interventions

There is conflicting evidence about whether faith-based interventions can reduce crime. There is some evidence that faith-based interventions can improve the behaviour of prisoners.

Justice Sector Population Report

This report is based on a projection model, which provides an overview of the amount of future crime that is likely to be committed by distinct groups in the New Zealand population.

Transitional Housing

Transitional Housing involves providing short-term housing for people who are homeless, who may have particular needs, and often also transitioning back into the community (e. g. from a prison or mental health facility).

Reintegration Services

Offenders face a number of challenges when being released from prison, making it difficult for them to successfully reintegrate into society. There is very promising New Zealand evidence that reintegration services reduce reoffending.

Outdoor Programmes

Outdoor programmes, such as Outward Bound, produce short-term reductions in criminal behaviour for adolescent offenders. The New Zealand evidence for reduced reoffending is mixed. For every 3-12 offenders receiving outdoor programmes, 1 fewer will reoffend.
