2 Sep 2016

The aim of this own initiative investigation conducted by the Office of the Children’s Commissioner (OCC) was to address the systemic issues emerging from complaints received from young persons in detention. During the course of the investigation several other issues were identified which were inherently connected to the three main issues named in the scope of the investigation because they reflect on the general management of young people in detention being placed ‘at-risk’.

This report reflects investigations conducted and the analysis of information obtained and received by the OCC. On completion of the investigation a consultative process was conducted in order to reach the final report. This process is detailed in the methodology of this report.
