The Steering Committee for the Review of Commonwealth/State Service Provision, in its Report on Government Services 2004, estimated that approximately $314 per person was spent by governments on justice in Tasmania in 2002-03. This figure is based on recurrent expenditure and does not include spending by governments on items such as capital works (i.e. new police stations, prisons or court facilities). In 2002-03, some $120 million was spent on police services, with a further $28 million spent on corrective services.
