Discounts pitched for prisoners in rehab – MSN

Low-risk prisoners could have their sentences reduced if they take part in rehabilitation programmes to prepare them for life on the outside, National hopes.

The party’s corrections spokeswoman, Louise Upston, says in a fourth term the party would introduce the Positive Pathways programme as an incentive for prisoners to undergo rehabilitation and training.

“The requirements for early release will be set by Corrections in training and treatment plans that are tailored to each individual prisoner,” Ms Upston said.
