The Queensland Government is committed to providing the best possible care and support for youth at Brisbane Youth Detention Centre. The detention centre employs trained staff who are passionate about fostering independence and preparing youth for adulthood. The staff members are also involved in regular contact with parents and young people. The detention centre has a caseworker, who monitors the charges and visits them regularly.

Health officials are testing the 127 residents and five hundred staff at the youth detention centre in order to determine whether the infection is contagious or a contagious disease. This outbreak has forced the detention centre to lock down and restrict outdoor and indoor gatherings for now. Health authorities have also restricted the centre’s capacity to take in new intakes.

Amnesty International has obtained 1,000 pages of government documents about the conditions of the two detention centres in Queensland. These documents describe serious incidents which took place there, including the solitary confinement of children after they threatened suicide. Another incident involved staff strapping a child detainee in a restraint chair and hooding him for hours. The documents also describe partial strip searches. These incidents have forced the government to establish a Royal Commission to review the practices at both facilities.

The National Children’s Commissioner Anne Hollonds has also criticised the Queensland government for its youth detention practices. Her criticism has increased pressure on the Palaszczuk government to act. A new department focusing on youth justice will be set up to help tackle the issue.

The Queensland government has recently published a report on the state’s youth detention centres. It found that many youth detention centres were understaffed, staff was poorly trained and lacked adequate security. The report also found that CCTV cameras were frequently covered by detainees. Despite these concerns, the government has committed millions of dollars to improving youth detention facilities.

Having a lawyer at the detention centre is also beneficial for young people. The Department of Children, Youth Justice and Multicultural Affairs has a policy allowing for four visits per week for a child. This policy allows the child to have a lawyer and a close family member without having to choose between the two. The Queensland Government’s youth detention system is under increasing pressure due to an increasing number of detainees. As of Monday, October 31, there were 291 young people in Queensland’s youth detention centres. The government is unable to say how many of these people have child protection orders. However, it is estimated that 86 of the 270 youth detained had active child protection orders.

The Queensland government has taken measures to protect the children at Brisbane Youth Detention Centre and to protect the public. They have imposed a 10-person limit in southeast Queensland and a 30 person limit in the rest of Queensland. The Premier says she is deeply concerned about the cluster of cases and has made decisions to limit the number of inmates and staff at the centre. The government has also suspended face-to-face visits and checked all staff on duty since August 8.

Peirson Services and the Presbyterian Church of Queensland have formed a joint venture to continue their work with youth at the Brisbane Youth Detention Centre. Through the joint venture, the two organisations will continue to provide wraparound support for youth as they leave the centre. The aim is to help young people transition back into the community and flourish. The two organizations seek to build partnerships with other organisations, churches, businesses and government services to help the youths reach their full potential.
