Pathways to and from Serious Sex Offender orders.

This data linkage project will examine mental health and criminogenic precursors in Victorian Offenders who have been made subject to a Serious Sex Offender Supervision order since the implementation of the Serious Sex Offenders Monitoring Act 2005 or Detention order since the implementation of the Serious Sex Offenders (Detention and Supervision) Act 2009. The project will also examine post order outcomes across mental health, physical health and criminogenic variables. This project will give a unique insight into the complex and heterogeneous cohort of offenders made subject to these orders and help to map outcome trajectories and possible points of further intervention/treatment.
