Getting young people back on track

Some young people develop more serious and persistent criminal records. They may complete many community-based sentences or spend time in detention because they keep doing the wrong thing. This usually requires more intensive intervention by the Department of Corrective Services to help get them on track.

The Department employs staff in the community and in detention to provide programs for young people. These programs and therapeutic services aim to help a young person deal with the reasons behind their offending behaviour and encourage them to change their ways.

The Department has developed Back on Track - a program designed to give children and young adults a look at the consequences of certain crimes, such as arrest, appearing in court, and sentencing options.

To play Back on Track you need to have Adobe Flash Player installed. If you do not have the free Flash player installed, it can be downloaded from Adobe's website.
