People found guilty of serious offences may be sentenced to a period of imprisonment and held in an adult correctional centre. In the Children's Court, this is called a control order and the young person is held in a juvenile detention centre.
An Intensive Correction Order (ICO) is a term of imprisonment that is served in the community. Community safety is the court's paramount consideration when imposing an ICO.
Supervision is a mandatory condition, as well as at least one additional condition. The severity of an ICO can be strengthened by the layering of additional conditions such as home detention, electronic monitoring, curfews, community service work, alcohol and drug abstinence, place restrictions, programs and treatment.
