Report on Youth Offending in Jersey

Produced by the Justice and Home Affairs
Authored by Home Affairs and published on 25 Apr 2013
Prepared internally, no external cost


​​​This Report on Youth Offending in Jersey was compiled by the Home Affairs Department at the request of the Children's Policy Group. 

There has been a remarkable downward trend in youth offending statistics over the last few years with far fewer young people entering the criminal justice system and coming before the Youth Court. 

This report examines the reason for the reduction in youth offending; looks at what is being done well and questions whether there are any emerging issues that need to be considered.

The findings of the report indicate that the welcome reduction in youth crime is being experienced in other jurisdictions and not just in Jersey. The evidence from Jersey and other places points to the rise in internet use as a factor. 

It has been recognised that there are potential concerns arising with regard to safeguarding children and vulnerable adults, the changing nature of crime, crimes committed online, the collection of reliable data about internet crimes and the laws that exist to deal with it.

The appendix to the report contains information on youth offending in areas of the UK.
