Last week, the State Government released a new 5-point youth crime action plan consisting of:
- ‘Tougher action on bail’ to reduce the number of young people who pose a risk to the community being granted bail,
- A ‘police blitz on bail’ that will involve more appeals of court decisions about bail where appropriate,
- 24/7 ‘Police Strike Teams’ that will include youth justice workers who will target high risk young people in five locations,
- A trial of new ‘On Country’ rehabilitation initiatives for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people in Townsville, Cairns and Mount Isa, and
- An allocation of $2 million to empower community-based organisations to develop and implement local community-based solutions.
With the plan having been announced in the midst of concentrated reporting by some media outlets about a ‘youth crime wave’, Premier Palaszczuk said she had listened to the concerns raised by communities. So what are the facts about the ’youth crime wave’? And why should the Government exercise caution in not throwing out the baby with the bathwater?
