This article aims at assessing the intentions of the legislature in proposing and abandoning various statutory amendments leading to the current placement policy of the Department of Correctional Services. Such amendments have left a trail of conflicting and sometimes contradictory messages that cause confusion. In the end, legislative reform of the placement policy seems to have been undermined by a failure to apply a purposeful interpretation to the relevant statutes in the light of the case law.
