Crime is a huge problem in regional Queensland. The traditional sentencing and incarceration laws are not working, particularly for young offenders.
Magistrates currently only have two options when dealing with an offender: send them to jail or put them straight back in the community.
KAP’s Relocation Sentencing policy would give them another option. Magistrates would be able to send offenders to a remote, approved property. They would work on the land to learn life skills and become better society members.
This would give offenders, particularly young offenders, a chance to break the offending cycle, before they become professional criminals, while still keeping the community safe.
