Youth Justice Service
The Youth Justice Service is a partnership between agencies (police, the health board and probation services) and Gwynedd and Môn councils. It is responsible for the provision of all youth justice services for those aged 10 - 18 in Gwynedd and Môn.
We work with young people, and families of young people, who are:
- referred to us by the Police
- going through the courts
- placed under our supervision as part of a community custodial sentence
- referred to us in response to anti-social behaviour
- identified as being at risk of offending.
We aim to ensure that:
- the needs of victims are met
- young people take responsibility for their criminal behaviour and put something back into their community
- parents take responsibility for their children
- opportunities are available to prevent youth crime
- the swift administration of justice.
