Quotes attributable to Ms Shelley Eder:

“It’s heartening to read that the government is prioritising rehabilitation and addressing the underlying factors of crime in developing these new facilities.

“Addressing the issues that contribute to recidivism should always be the main objective of corrections, and locking people away with no access to treatment and services is counterproductive.

“It is also important to keep in mind that the absolute best outcome for the community and for everyone involved is that at-risk behaviours are addressed before criminal offending becomes an issue, and that the funding towards corrections is also offset by funding to organisations addressing these issues in the broader community.”
