Youth justice custodial incident data reports 2016-2017

The Minister for Families and Children has made a commitment to publish quarterly incident reporting data from quarter three, 2015 - 2016.

Incident reporting data is a snapshot in time of allegations and observed incidents in youth justice custodial facilities operated by the Department of Health and Human Services. 

They are recorded and remain as incidents regardless of whether further information becomes available to substantiate or disprove an event. Incident reports include disclosures of historic abuse and assault that were alleged to have occurred before a young person entered youth justice detention.

As part of the Machinery of Government changes announced by the Premier on 6 February 2017, youth justice services transferred from the Department of Health and Human Services to the Department of Justice and Regulation from 3 April 2017.

The reports below have previously been published on the Department of Health and Human Services website. Accessible HTML versions will soon be made available.
