Numbers of adults and juveniles in custody fell significantly over the period from April to June. Adults dropped by 27% and juveniles dropped 16%.

The drop is said to be attributable to a fall in the number of defendants being held in remand, which coincides with the introduction of the new Bail Act 2013 (NSW).
