One program that is succeeding is run by Marist Youth Care. In Victoria, Indigenous children were significantly less likely to receive a police caution than non-Indigenous children in 1995-96 11.

Juvenile Justice: Australian Court Responses Situated in the International Context

Despite its reluctance to do so, a court is often forced to remand a young person in detention rather than release him or her on bail if, because of family violence or other factors, the young person has no safe or stable home to go to, or if there is no appropriate adult guardian to provide supervision and support for the young person to meet their bail requirements.

This appears to have been the case for non-Indigenous juveniles more so than Indigenous juveniles. A formal referral by the Criminal Division to the child protection agency provides an alternative pathway to direct children and young people to participate in treatment programs, where certain conditions are met, without the need to rely on a criminal prosecution.

Many of these conditions appear to reflect 'welfare' concerns about juveniles that do not usually apply to adults. At 1981-2007 June 1981, there were 1,352 juveniles in detention in Australia, or 64.

Alternatively, they have been sentenced for an offence. The second major theme relates to the amount and quality of contact detainees have with friends and family. Staff from the office of the Ombudsman in Victoria visit all detainees on a monthly basis. On 30 June 1996, the AIC counted 782 children aged 10 to 17 in juvenile detention centres Australia-wide.

155 Young offenders aged between 10 and 17 years are usually dealt with by 1981-2007 juvenile or youth justice system, where detention is considered a last resort and the emphasis is on diversion and rehabilitation in order to break offending cycles. 35 An evaluation of the effects of diversionary restorative justice conferences on repeat offenders in the Australian Capital Territory undertaken in 1995-2000 showed positive aspects.

The large number of indigenous young people in juvenile detention across Australia varies according to the concentration of indigenous communities in particular jurisdictions.

Review of data on juvenile remandees in Tasmania: Final report. An Australian Institute of Criminology AIC study of 41 700 Queensland children who had been the subject of substantiated cases of child maltreatment or classified as being 'at risk' found that children who have suffered maltreatment, particularly physical abuse and neglect are more likely to offend than other children. Importantly, however, it also demonstrates that although Indigenous over-representation has increased since 1994 see Figure 6rates of Indigenous juveniles in detention have not increased substantially over this period.

This experiment concluded that the dynamics of each type of offence may create a different emotional climate and basis for legitimacy of legal intervention using court or conference processes. That study found that early intervention and supportive programs are vital in stopping an escalation to more violent offences.
