Description

On an average day between 2012 and 2013, there were over 6300 young people aged 10 to 17 years old under justice supervision. - The Institute of Health and Welfare report says that's compared to over 7300 a year earlier. The numbers relate to young people across Australia under supervision either in the community or locked in detention. Head of the Child Welfare and Prisoner Health Unit at the Institute, Tim Beard, says the biggest drops have been among young males, and those in community-based supervision. - Marc Tong, World News Radio 17 April 2014
