Introduction

Residency 2009-10

“We have to be smart on crime and spend our dwindling dollars wisely on justice initiatives."
“Incarceration does nothing to reduce reoffending for many non-violent offenders, who could be better managed through court-supervised treatment and community corrections.”
Judge Peggy Fulton Hora

This residency aimed to improve the safety and wellbeing of South Australians by exploring innovative and alternative options to the traditional courtroom. It sought to improve access to justice and outcomes in civil disputes, and to reduce crime.
