This report makes recommendations to the Attorney-General in relation to the serious issue of arson and deliberately lit fires in Tasmania. This report was one of the four initial referrals to the Sentencing Advisory Council at its inception in June 2010. The publication of this report follows the release of a Consultation Paper in December 2011. The purpose of the Consultation Paper was to assist in the discussion about the legislative framework, sentencing options, intervention and community information programs available for adults and juveniles involved in firesetting in Tasmania. The Consultation Paper posed 19 questions, including:
- the introduction of new criminal provisions
- pre-sentence reports to determine the level of risk for juveniles
- the deferral of sentences as a sentencing option
- sentencing options and treatment programs for adult and juvenile firesetters
- community information and education programs in Tasmania.
