What is an Intensive Corrections Order?

AT ITS most basic level, an Intensive Corrections Order is a fixed sentence served through a combination of community service, complying with strict conditions and supervision by Community Corrections.

Offenders, who must be electronically monitored may also be required to attend rehabilitative programs and/or be subject to drug and alcohol testing.

The compulsory community service component is 32 hours a month.

According to the NSW State Parole Authority, if an offender fails to comply with the conditions of the ICO, they may have their order revoked and be returned to custody.

“The Authority can make a limited number of decisions in response to a breach of ICO,” the website reads.

“Some of these are legislated and some are utilised by the Authority in order to provide some “middle ground” between no action and returning an offender to custody.”
