Review Framework Page 7 of 30 Files subject to Audit Numbers on parole and electronic monitoring included in this audit are as follows: Parolees = 1092 (49 are on electronic monitoring) Administrative Home Detention with electronic monitoring = 16 Home Detention with electronic monitoring = 13 Serious Sex Offender with electronic monitoring = 1 Health (Mental Impairment Orders) with electronic monitoring = 4 Suspended Sentence with electronic monitoring = 64 Bail with electronic monitoring = 49 In total, 256 files have been audited. Key Performance Indicators Community Corrections have a set of key performance indicators (KPIs) in place which are based on similar standards to other jurisdictions. Not all targets are set at 100% in recognition that the locality of offenders, the time taken to engage with and develop rapport and the many competing demands of Probation and Parole Officers, may impact the timely completion of some activities to the required standard. One of the most significant issues impacting development of rapport with individuals is the fact many Aboriginal people, particularly those in remote areas, speak English as a second or third language. As a result the KPI targets are generally set at 85%. Where relevant, the assessment against the KPIs has been done and is reported throughout the audit report. Auditing Process Community Corrections developed a multi phased approach to completing the audit to ensure the fidelity and integrity of the process: Phase 1 identification of offenders falling within the scope of the audit 2 The scope was revised from the initially reported 103 parolees, to include parolees who were in custody serving a sanction on 5 June 2019 and parolees who have federal and interstate parole orders registered in the NT. 109 16 13 1 4 64 4942% 6% 5% 0% 2% 26% 19% 0% 5% 10% 15% 20% 25% 30% 35% 40% 45% 0 20 40 60 80 100 120 Parolees Admin Home Detention with EM Home Detention Serious Sex Offender with EM Health ( Mental Imparied Orders) Suspended Sentences with EM Bail with EM Offender numbers included in this Audit Number Percentage
