Searches of children or young people in Care and Protection and Youth Justice Residences

Updated: 07 February 2017

This key information outlines the requirements for searching children and young people in residences.

Our children and young people have rights and they deserve to know what to expect from us. When we carry out a search or inspection we inform them, and we undertake searches and inspections with the greatest care and sensitivity.

Children and young people in Oranga Tamariki residences receive information — on admission and regularly during their stay — about their rights and responsibilities and the procedures in respect of searches.
