In this section
All traffic offences that are not infringement offences are included in the Youth Court jurisdiction. Family group conferences are convened as required for these traffic offences.
We monitor tamariki and rangatahi who are detained in an Oranga Tamariki residence or Corrections youth unit in a prison at least once every 14 days. We try to find a community-based or other less restrictive placement option where appropriate.
Oranga Tamariki and the Department of Corrections can make a joint application to the Youth Court to detain a 17-year-old rangatahi in a youth unit of a prison to ensure the safety of any rangatahi in Oranga Tamariki custody.
A social worker is allocated to each rangatahi in police custody to undertake the requirements of the Youth Court review process under section 241(2) and to ensure we are monitoring the safety and wellbeing of rangatahi while in police custody.
Section 284(1) lists the factors that the Youth Court must consider when making certain orders under section 283. Section 284(1A) requires additional factors to be considered if the order is under section 283(o).
