Statement on incident at Bimberi Youth Justice Centre

The Canberra Liberals worry about the safety and welfare of both staff and detainees at the Bimberi Youth Justice Centre. The ACT Government has serious questions to answer.

Concerns about training raised this morning by the CPSU reflect concerns that I have raised over recent years regarding the provision of adequate training for staff who work in this important facility.

In the past, people have questioned how these kinds of incidents are investigated. I expect this government to make sure that this investigation is a model of procedural fairness and transparency.
