Abstract

The justice system includes laws, procedures and specialised agencies that focus solely on juvenile offenders. Since at least early last century there has been recognition that criminal justice should proceed with caution and restraint in dealing with the lives of juveniles. In particular, the view has been that 'get tough' solutions have the potential to wreck young lives and at the same time increase rather than reduce levels of youthful offending. One protective law in regards to juveniles restricts their public identification. Yet recent 'get tough' moves have resulted in changes to the Children (Criminal Proceedings) Act 1987 (NSW) (the CCPA) where s ll(4)(b)-(c) removed the prohibition on public naming of youthful offenders in 2001.
