Drug Courts

International research shows that drug courts reduce crime but evidence is mixed about the cost/ benefits.

Behaviour Management in Schools

Managing problem behaviour in schools is very important from an educational perspective. There is also clear international evidence that behavioural interventions in schools can reduce offending and victimisation.

Early Interventions for Under 13s

Early intervention for children under 13 can reduce teenage and adult offending. It can also improve children’s intellectual development, academic achievement and health. • For every 12-21 childhood interventions, one fewer will offend in adolescence.

Post-release Supervision

There is some international research which shows that supervision for offenders released from prison reduces reoffending, however, New Zealand evidence is limited.
