RA Lincoln, Paul Birchall, Gail Flatt

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractResearchpeer-review


Since 1978 the Children's Court in Western Australia has used the option of Community Service Orders (C.S.Os) in dealing with juvenile offenders. This paper presents an evaluation of the first
two years of the scheme by reference to departmental court records of offenders completing C.S.Os. While acknowledging the value of reactions to the scheme by members of the public, official bodies and juvenile offenders, these were not the subject of the current research.
