More prisons are not the answer to reducing crimesmartmast.png

Prisons are meant to protect the community and rehabilitate prisoners. Yet, evidence shows that prison often fails to rehabilitate people and can increase the risk of reoffending. Despite this, we continue to lock up more and more people, mostly from disadvantaged backgrounds, at huge social and financial cost to the community. Putting more people in prison diverts resources from vital social infrastructure and cost-effective initiatives which have been shown to successfully prevent crime. There are better and more cost-effective ways of reducing crime than prisons.
