Juvenile Justice

A report by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare “Juvenile Justice in Australia 2008-09” shows that around 7200 young people were under juvenile justice supervision on any given day. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people were 24 times more likely to be detained than non-Indigenous young people. Half in detention were indigenous.
