Mrs Kikkert asked the Minister for Corrections, upon notice, on 14 May 2021:

(1) How many Sentence Management Officers (SMOs) are employed by ACT Corrective Services.

(2) How many SMOs work with inmates at the Alexander Maconochie Centre (AMC).

(3) Is there a maximum number of inmates that an SMO can be assigned to; if so, what is that number.

(4) Are SMOs who work with inmates at the AMC based primarily within the AMC.

(5) Is there any workspace in the AMC dedicated for use by SMOs.

(6) Is there a minimum of hours that an SMO must spend in person with an inmate they are assigned to.

(7) What key indicators is an SMO subject to, to evaluate their performance.

(8) What key indicators does an SMO use to evaluate the rehabilitation of an inmate they are assigned to.

(9) Do SMOs have a job duty to ensure inmates have a secure place of residence upon release.

(10) What are the minimum qualifications or certificates required to be a SMO.

Mr Gentleman: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) ACTCS is funded for 10 Sentence Management Officers (SMOs) and all 10 positions are currently filled.

(2) All SMOs work with detainees at the Alexander Maconochie Centre (AMC).

(3) There is no maximum number of detainees a SMO can be assigned to. The needs of each detainee are highly variable. Therefore, one SMO may have a smaller or larger case load depending on the complexities of each detainee.
