Summary
Analyses trends in bail, sentencing and court appearances of the New South Wales Indigenous prison population. Presents data on percentage change in the age standardised rate of Indigenous imprisonment by jurisdiction 2001-2015; Indigenous imprisonment by offence and year; average non-parole period : Indigenous offenders 2001-2015; number of Indigenous offenders imprisoned by offence type (2001-2015); number of Indigenous offenders imprisoned for justice procedure offences: 2001-2015; number of Indigenous offenders imprisoned for acts intended to cause injury: 2001-2015; Percentage of Indigenous offenders imprisoned by offence type (2001-2015); Number of Indigenous offenders convicted by offence type (2001-2015); Number of Indigenous convictions for justice procedure offences: 2001-2015; number of Indigenous convictions for acts intended to cause injury: 2001-2015; number of Indigenous convictions for traffic and vehicle regulatory offences: 2001-1015; Growth in Indigenous imprisonment flow if the percentage imprisoned remained constant at its 2001 value; number of Indigenous offenders refused bail by offence type (2001-2015); percentage of Indigenous offenders refused bail by offence type (2001-2015). Concludes that the rise in Indigenous imprisonment in NSW is due to a combination of higher rates of arrest resulting in conviction, a greater likelihood of imprisonment given conviction and a higher rate of bail refusal; efforts to slow growth in the Indigenous imprisonment rate should focus on measures which reduce the number of Indigenous persons being arrested and imprisoned for serious assault resulting in injury, stalking/intimidation and breach of community-based
