Operation public confidence

After a damning report in 2013 that resulted in a forensic overhaul, the Adult Parole Board is determined to restore faith in the system. APB chair Peter Couzens has a big job ahead of him. The Hon Peter Couzens was walking through Melbourne’s CBD recently when he bumped into an old friend from his sons’ school. The two men stood on the street corner and had a friendly catch up – until the former County Court judge mentioned what he was doing these days. “I puffed out my chest and said, ‘I’m the chair of the Adult Parole Board’. There was silence, and then this man erupted. He said, ‘oh, you’re one of those xxx who let those xxx out of prison’, and he took off, as if I had the plague.”
