One element of the Government's Reducing Reoffending reforms involves better prioritising and servicing a select group of offenders across the criminal justice system. The key component of the Priority Offenders reform is Local Coordinated Multiagency offender management (LCM).
The Department analysed which offenders should be given priority in order to have the greatest impact on reoffending rates and community safety. Priority reoffenders are responsible for a disproportionate amount of crime. It is estimated that eight per cent of persistent NSW offenders are responsible for about 19 per cent of NSW crime.
LCM involves Corrective Services NSW (CSNSW), NSW Health, NSW Police, Family and Community Services (FACS) working together to manage individuals residing in the community who have a history of persistent reoffending or domestic violence offences and are at a medium-high risk of reoffending. LCM recognises that to improve community safety some of these offenders would benefit from coordinated and intensive interventions and services that are tailored and targeted towards reducing their risk of reoffending.
