New data released today show a contentious police program targeting high risk repeat offenders is reducing crime.

Acting NSW Police Commissioner Gary Worboys said the program, known as the Suspect Target Management Plan, is a police initiative to identify offenders at risk of reoffending.

Mr Worboys told Jim Wilson the analysis of the program showed it’s had the biggest impact on domestic violence.

“We have a particular group of people, who are high risk domestic violence offenders.

“This scheme, when it was put in place around those people, there was a 43 per cent reduction in terms of ongoing offending.”
