Submission to the Social Services and Community Committee: Oranga Tamariki (Youth Justice Demerit Points) Amendment Bill

Submissions

23 March 2021

The Oranga Tamariki (Youth Justice Demerit Points) Amendment Bill aims to “simplify the administrative processes” and “introduce structured interventions intended to improve behaviours and increase accountability and transparency within the youth justice system.”

The OCC does not support the Bill and opposes it in the strongest possible terms.

We recommended that the Select Committee reject it entirely and focus instead on reducing inequities and further expanding the youth justice age jurisdiction.
