The State Parole Authority (SPA) does not issue Intensive Corrections Orders (ICOs) but has legilsative powers to revoke an order and return an offender to custody.
It also holds review hearings into revocations of ICO and, where appropriate, can reinstate an order.
Offenders on an ICO are supervised and managed by Community Corrections Officers and a breach can have serious consequences for an offender.
If you are on an ICO and commit a serious breach of your order, then Community Corrections will notify the State Parole Authority.
This may result in immediate action to revoke your order and issue a warrant for your arrest, and you will be taken into custody.
The SPA can only act if it is notified by Community Corrections which must file a report outlining the details of the breach.
If an offender commits a minor breach of their ICO - such as missing an appointment - the legislation allows Community Corrections officers to deal with minor breaches by taking one of the following actions:
For more serious breaches of an ICO, such as failing to engage with supervision or interventions, the SPA is notified by Community Corrections officers who file an official breach report.
The report outlines the details of the breach of the order, the offender's response to supervision and a recommendation by Community Corrections for appropriate action.
Depending on the nature of the breach, the actions the SPA can take are:
Generally, if an offender commits a serious offence while on an ICO, the SPA immediately revokes the order and issues a warrant for NSW Police to arrest the offender and bring them into custody.
The SPA can only take action if it is notified via a Community Corrections breach report.
