In May 2020, the South Australian Department for Correctional Services (DCS) commissioned a team of researchers from the Social Policy Research Centre, UNSW Sydney (University of New South Wales); Griffith Criminology Institute, Griffith University; and Époque Consulting to conduct an independent evaluation of Home Detention (HD) in South Australia (SA). This follows on from an initial evaluation (2016-2018) and provides a longitudinal assessment of the impact of legislative and program changes to HD in SA since 2016. Findings are presented related to the profile and outcomes of two distinct group of prisoners subject to HD: those on court-ordered HD (COHD) and those on release-ordered HD (ROHD) spanning from 2016 - 2022. The report also presents findings from the economic evaluation of home detention in South Australia.
