If you missed the latest Background Briefing program on the ABC click on the link below. The program looked at recidivism rates and the unfortunate situation where programs that actually keep people out of prison are being cut in an effort to appear to be 'tough on crime'.

Background Briefing:

More than half the people in prison will re-offend and return, creating a huge cost burden on the public purse. But governments driven by law and order politics are unwilling to invest in reducing recidivism and in NSW a respected service that’s worked with prisoners on release for 50 years is being dropped.
