Northern Territory youth detention understaffing to blame for increase in assaults

No Comments

Detainees and justice officers within the Northern Territory’s youth detention centres say chronic understaffing is partly to blame for an increase in assaults inside the facilities.

The Northern Territory Children’s Commission said detainees are being locked in their cells for unacceptably long periods of time because there are not enough officers to safely manage the centres, resulting in increased tension.
