RHD allows a small number of eligible and suitable inmates to be electronically monitored under home detention for the last six months of their non-parole period.
This provides a highly structured and monitored step-down between prison and parole for those inmates who have been assessed as suitable for the scheme.
Corrective Services NSW is responsible for selecting suitable offenders for RHD.
The State Parole Authority has no role in this process.
Applications for RHD cannot be made by inmates or their legal representatives.
The legislation specifically excludes inmates serving life sentences, high risk sex or violent offenders and those sentenced for terrorism or domestic violence offences.
Inmates who are granted release on RHD are subject to strict conditions including being electronically monitored 24/7, submitting to alcohol and drug testing and taking part in rehabilitation programs, employment or community service if directed to do so by their Community Corrections Officer.
