The aim of the study is to improve our national understanding of veterans and their experiences in Australian corrective services systems. The study seeks to establish evidence regarding the reasons that veterans become incarcerated, the risk factors leading to their involvement in the criminal justice system and corrections, and their service needs while in prison and transitioning from prison.
The study will present information that can be used by commonwealth and state jurisdictions to support veterans in their successful transition from the military to civilian life.
