Publisher

Description

This report measures the number of young people who were released from a supervised youth justice sentence and who were subsequently returned—that is, young people who received another supervised sentence after the end of their initial sentence. Supervised sentences include both community-based and detention sentences.

Key findings:

  • Of young people aged 10–17 who were under sentenced youth justice supervision at some time between 2000–01 and 2019–20, 41% returned to sentenced supervision before turning 18.
  • Of young people aged 10–16 in 2018–19 and released from sentenced community-based supervision, 38% returned to sentenced supervision within 6 months, and 54% within 12 months.
  • Of those released from sentenced detention, 61% returned within 6 months, and 80% within 12 months.
