SA to ban spit hoods in youth detention

Spit hoods will be banned in South Australia's youth detention facility with the state government saying they have no place in a modern justice system. The hoods, designed to prevent young people in custody from spitting or biting others, have been used in SA since 2014, including 57 times between October 2016 and June this year. Human Services Minister Michelle Lensink said it was unacceptable that South Australia remained the only jurisdiction in the country that still relied on the use of spit hoods for protecting staff from disease transmission.
