Update on Kids Detention stats

As at 12 May 2011, the Minister has granted community detention placements to 759 people, including 368 children. Some are awaiting transfer to the community.

Some 79 of these people have been granted permanent Protection visas since being approved for community detention placements, and the rest are either living in the community or are awaiting transfer in coming days.

This does not tell us how many teenager unaccompanied minors are still in locked detention or how many kids with families are in same but perhaps this information will be available soon.

The overall children in all Detention figure is 1057. This now includes Community detention.
