Member for Currumbin, Jann Stuckey MP is calling on local residents to contribute to the Newman Government’s Blueprint for the Future of Youth Justice.

“The recently released Safer Streets Crime Action Plan and survey will give Queenslanders an opportunity to voice their opinions on the state’s youth justice system,” Ms Stuckey said.

“Already in our first year of Government, the LNP has delivered a raft of criminal law reforms aimed at increasing sentences for offenders and breaking the cycle of youth crime.

“It was an LNP election commitment to trial youth boot camps and we have already established an early intervention camp on the Gold Coast and a sentenced camp in Cairns.

“As promised in the Government’s second six-month action plan, the review of youth justice will continue and this paper is a key element of that review.

“I would strongly encourage residents to complete the 5 minute survey to voice their opinion on a way forward.  All answers will remain confidential and you have until 30 June 2013 to have your say.

“Residents can come into my electorate office and fill out a survey, or complete a survey online at www.qld.gov.au/youthjusticesurvey

“It is vitally important the community works together to fight crime and make our streets safer for Queensland families.
