Children in custody need to feel respected by youth crime staff, expert says

A leading mind in Australian criminology says authorities need to fine tune their approach to young offenders if they want to reduce violence.

On average, 286 juveniles are in custody every day across the six detention centres in New South Wales.

More than half of these are on remand, awaiting the finalisation of court proceedings.

Senior Lecturer of Criminology at the University of Melbourne, Dr Diana Johns, says overall the number of detainees has actually declined in recent years.

However, concurrently, the number of those being held for short periods of time while awaiting sentencing is increasing.

Complex upbringings

"What we do know about young people coming into contact with the justice system is that youth crime is going down," she told 7NEWS.com.au.

"But that also means kids who do come into contact with police tend to have more complex stuff going on in their lives."
