Justice Reinvestment - Port Adelaide

The South Australian Government has committed to implementing Justice Reinvestment trials in two locations.

Port Adelaide has been selected as a potential trial area. In order to get it right from the start, we need to consider what the community might think about it and how it might work.

The Attorney-General’s Department (with support from PwC’s Indigenous Consulting (PIC)) will be consulting with community members, service providers, government, non-government organisations and others about what a trial justice reinvestment project could look like for Port Adelaide. We will need to consider what features might be needed for it to work well and what sort of partnership might be required.

Consultation will include a series of workshops in July and August at Tauondi College, Port Adelaide. An advisory group chaired by Paul Vandenbergh has also been established.
