Sentenced to a Job Program "successful beyond expectations" and will be expanded

 

 

Prisoners have been sent to work "in real jobs, for real money" as part of the Sentenced to a Job Program, first reported in the Alice Springs News Online on December 18, 2012. Minister for Correctional Services John Elferink (pictured) says the trial program has been successful beyond expectations and will be expanded.

Not just hot air

You’ll find on this page concrete ideas from Alice Springs Town Council candidates and Legislative Assembly candidates about making Alice Springs a better place.

We’re looking for proposals that include details such as costs, benefits (financial and other), evidence of the likely support the proposal would get, and where else a similar scheme is working.

Thoughts you may like to put into the comment box will be one way of influencing the elections during this make-or-break time for the town.

Productive prisoners

This Christmas, residents in Tennant Creek and its surrounds will benefit from more than $140,000 worth of community work undertaken by 44 Barkly Work Camp prisoners.
Correctional Services Minister Gerry McCarthy says since the $7 million work camp officially opened on September 8 under the new era of corrections, the prisoners had completed almost 10,000 hours of work across more than 30 projects.
