Drawing on a range of sources, including public documents and interviews, this report illustrates that the Indeterminate Sentence for Public Protection (IPP) has been ill-conceived and is ultimately flawed.

The system is unable to support the numbers being sentenced under the IPP provisions, creating difficulties for the criminal justice system on a range of levels.
