Alternatives to Indefinite Detention

37. Alternatives to protracted detention in secure immigration detention centres might include:
(i) increased use of ‘open facilities’ such as at Inverbrackie;
(ii) increased use of community detention;
(iii) use of appropriate control orders, including monitoring;
(iv) use of case specific or ‘tailor-made” reporting arrangements to match the risk;
(v) special hearings to consider release and conditions of release (along the lines of ‘bail’ hearings);
(vi) best interests of the child determinations for children affected by the adverse security assessments
of their parents or principal caregivers.
