Courts Innovation Programs
Magistrates Court - Criminal
Courts Innovation Programs were established to coordinate a number of proactive court diversion, treatment and sentencing initiatives in Queensland. These initiatives are targeted at offenders who appear before the court for offences relating to drug and alcohol addiction and/or homelessness.
The programs also coordinate strategies to reduce the number of Indigenous people appearing in the criminal justice system. These strategies take into account cultural issues in bail and sentencing hearings and provide culturally appropriate treatment programs as part of the conditions.
These Magistrates Court diversion initiatives include:
Information about the role and function of the Drug Court program in Queensland.
Information about the individual jurisdictions of Queensland Courts and services and facilities available to clients.
