Summary

"This paper discusses gender-specific trends in custodial deaths in Australia over a 21-year period. Established in 1992, the National Deaths in Custody Program (NDICP) collects data on all deaths that have occurred in police, prison or juvenile custody in Australia since 1980. Gender-specific information regarding deaths in custody is presented here for the first time, enabling differences between the circumstances of male and female custodial deaths to be considered."
