Community Based Corrections In Australia is a division of ACT Corrective Services and consists of the Probation and Parole Unit Rehabilitation Programs Unit and the Sentence Administration Board.

Probation and Parole Unit[edit]

The Probation & Parole Unit provides advice to Courts and releasing authorities on the background and attitudes of offenders on Community Based Orders (e.g. bail supervision, probation, and parole) and to refer offenders to appropriate community based or residential services to assist with addressing a variety of issues (e.g. drug and alcohol abuse, grief and loss issues, self-esteem and relationship issues). The Unit aims to reduce offending by the use of empirically sound risk assessment tools and a brokerage case management model, which targets criminogenic needs.
