Youth justice records have, since July 1994, been under the control of the Ministry of Justice, the Department of Justice and (from 2006) the Department of Corrective Services. People who are looking for youth detention records should contact the Department for Child Protection and Family Support for pre-1994 records and the Department for Corrective Services for post-1994 records.
Records for young people placed in youth justice centres after 1994 may be held by the Department for Corrective Services.
Access to these records is restricted to protect the privacy of individuals. You are very welcome to enquire.
