‘The Northern Territory has recorded the biggest jump in the Indigenous imprisonment rate of any jurisdiction in the nation.
A report from the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows there were about 1,250 Territorians in custody in the June quarter, with more than 1,000 of them Indigenous.
The ABS says the Indigenous imprisonment rate in the Territory climbed 11 per cent compared to the previous June quarter.
That took the Indigenous imprisonment rate per head of population in the Territory to more than 14 times the national average for all prisoners.
Overall, there 140 more people in jail than in the previous June quarter.’
