Jersey Youth Justice Review

Produced by the Children, Young People, Education and Skills
Authored by Jersey Youth Justice Review Steering Group , Lead Author Professor Jonathan Evans, University of South Wales and published on 29 May 2019
Cost: £25,000.00


​This report reviews the way in which Jersey's justice system deals with children. It was commissioned in response to a recommendation from the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry.

It finds good practice and best intentions throughout the criminal justice system, but also many areas that could be improved. It makes a significant number of recommendations that have been accepted in principle by the Council of Ministers.

The report proposes a model in which 'children are put first' and where, even if young people have done wrong, the criminal justice system recognises that they are, first and foremost, children.
