Supervised Release Review Board

Release Considerations

When young offenders are close to completion of the minimum period before they become eligible for supervised release, they are considered by the Supervised Release Review Board (the Board) for a Supervised Release Order (SRO). Relevant reports are requested and provided from various stakeholders.

The Board must decide:

  • if a SRO should be made
  • when it should be made
  • the agenda to be provided for the young person in the community
  • the conditions to be imposed.

The aim of the law and the Board is to release young offenders into the community under the terms of Orders which have the best chance of achieving their rehabilitation. The Board believes that no young offender is beyond redemption and that the best guarantee of the safety of the community from further offending by them, lies in their rehabilitation.
