Mr Leon Perera asked the Minister for Home Affairs of those sentenced to Reformative Training since 2019 (a) how many detainees have been given a supervision order upon reaching their minimum detention period; (b) of the detainees who have been detained past their minimum detention period, what is the average number of months detained past their minimum detention period before receiving their supervision orders; and (c) how many detainees have served the maximum detention period of 54 months.
Mr K Shanmugam: From 31 October 2018, when the Criminal Procedure Code (Reformative Training) Regulations 2018 was operationalised, to 31 December 2022, 473 persons sentenced to Reformative Training were given a supervision order. Of these, 201 did so upon reaching their minimum detention period. The remainder were, on average, released on supervision five months beyond their minimum detention period.
To date, no trainees has served the maximum detention period of 54 months.
