Characteristics of prolific offenders in NSW


This report outlines research undertaken to identify prolific offenders and their characteristics. It identified Indigenous offenders as a group significantly more likely to be prolific offenders. As prolific offenders make a disproportionate contribution to offending rates, and recidivism rates, the report suggests they are a group that would benefit from interventions.
