Currently only the NCCJS Recorded Crime collection includes information for juveniles (as victims of crimes recorded by police). The Centre will be extending its coverage of juvenile justice, and juvenile corrections in particular, through the following two initiatives:

  • The COAG Courts Administration Working Group has sought the assistance of the NCCJS in the inclusion of juvenile justice statistics in its report.
  • The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare is undertaking a project on juvenile justice and has sought the assistance of the Centre in relation to criminal justice data on juveniles.
