This rapid evidence review examines Australian and international literature around adult homicide recidivism, prevention of homicide re-offending, treatments, and interventions in the prison environments for those convicted of a homicide offence. A rapid evidence review was undertaken of the relevant research literature to identify responses to the following questions:

  1. What is the currently understood rate of homicide offender recidivism?
  2. What are the risk factors to homicide offender recidivism?
  3. What interventions can be applied to prevent recidivism in those who are incarcerated for a homicide offence?

The review aimed to understand the risks that homicide offenders pose to the community after release as well as consider possible means by which those risks could be mitigated prior to release.
