Doing time - time for doing: Indigenous youth in the criminal justice system

by Standing Committee on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs

Report
Year 2011
City Canberra
Institution Parliament of Australia
Date June 2011

Abstract

This report by the Standing Committee on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs presents findings from an inquiry into the high levels of involvement of Indigenous juveniles and young adults in the criminal justice system. The committee was focused on identifying reasons for the continuing over-representation of Indigenous young people in custody, and specifically ways of prevention and early intervention to curb this.

A major finding of the committee was the need for the Closing the gap strategy to include a national partnership agreement specifically relating to the Safe communities building block which would be inclusive of specific targets relating to justice. The committee made 40 recommendations to the Australian Government.
