Liberals to give more say to crime victims


If a Liberal Nationals government is elected in Victoria in November, it will change the law to ensure that a victim of crime is involved in every decision on whether to let a prisoner out of jail on parole.


Parole is when an offender is let out of jail before they have served their full sentence.  This is designed to let offenders learn to live in the community without re-offending, on strict conditions.


However, when a criminal is let out of jail, this can cause their victims to live in fear of the offender attacking them again.


Having a victim of crime involved in all parole decisions will help ensure the effects of parole on victims are fully considered, and victims are properly protected, before any criminals are let out of jail early.
