Crozier: Youth Justice – Quarterly incident data

Youth Justice – Quarterly incident data

Minister for Families and Children, Jenny Mikakos has failed to meet her own timelines in releasing important data on the state of Victoria’s youth justice system.

On Monday, the Minister was required to release the number of recorded assaults and behavioural issues within the youth justice system but has failed to do so.

The Minister is either deliberately hiding the data, incompetent or both.

It is little wonder Daniel Andrews has lost control of law and order in Victoria, with Jenny Mikakos in charge of youth justice and Steve Herbert in charge of adult prisons.
