The NSW Government is committed to improving the justice system response to domestic and family violence.
In 2015, the Government made reducing domestic violence reoffending one of its highest priorities, establishing it as a Premier’s Priority.
To support achievement of the Premier’s Priority, the Government is delivering a comprehensive and innovative program of work focused on: intervening earlier; driving behaviour change among sentenced offenders; and actively monitoring and policing high risk offenders.
By working with domestic violence perpetrators to address their behaviour and hold them to account, we are improving victim safety and protecting our community from the serious harm caused by domestic violence reoffending.
