Court of new beginnings reduces reoffending by 60%

Statistic of the day:

Mr Coster says 80% of daylight anti-social behaviour in the city is caused by just 30 people.

But the Special Circumstances Court, also known as the Court of New Beginnings, was established in 2010 its programme to rehabilitate and support homeless people caught in a cycle of low-level offending, has resulted in 60% reduction in reoffending.

That’s good for them and good for society.

    Would the ‘good for society’ bit be the part where the taxpayer now stumping up for yet another parallel system of justice via a newly established court actually costs less because the ineffective current systems have been severely pruned? Or chief beaks overseas junkets have been curtailed?

    I thought so. Not!

    That sounds close to what several senior cops have said over time.. In Northland one such cop said 80% of the crime was committed by just six families, and a Rotorua cop has said much the same.

    If these seem extreme statements.. think of how many times you find out a crook has been convicted 20,50 100 times.. divide these totals into NZ’s total crime rate of over 400,000 crimes and you can see that crime with a conviction is committed by just a tiny number of people.
