Youth Justice Bill update

THE Youth Justice (Miscellaneous Amendments) Bill, was tabled in the House of Assembly recently and is likely to be debated on November 20.

The Bill is a result of a long term review of the Youth Justice Act that started in 2009.

Some measures identified in the review were excluded from the draft Bill because of a lack of funding.

Implementation of other measures has been deferred.

The CPSU raised concerns about some of the resource impacts arising from the new Bill, with Youth Justice already an area that’s significantly under-resourced.
