Tasmanian Youth Justice Highest Rates of Assault and Self Harm

Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens' Leader and Human Services spokesperson

Today’s Report on Government Services (ROGs) chapter on youth justice exposes a harsh approach to youth justice in Tasmania and reinforces the Greens' position to close Ashley Youth Detention Centre.

The latest RoGS reveal Tasmania had the highest rate of assaults and self-harm in custody. That is a damning indictment on the current youth justice system. 

The report also shows that Tasmania is lagging when it comes to developing case plans for community-based orders.
