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.

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.

Mental Health Courts

Ninety-one percent of prisoners have been diagnosed with either a substance abuse, or mental health problem over their lifetime. Mental Health Courts help in some cases to reduce offending.
