Details

A number of civil injunctions are available to inhibit a range of concerning behaviours young people exhibit, or to protect individuals from violence. These injunctions can be applied for in the youth court and young people could ultimately end up in youth secure accommodation if they fail to comply with the requirements of an injunction. To help enforce these powers two civil orders are available to the court for a breach. They are a supervision order or a detention order.
