Resolved to RECOMMEND: (to Council)
That the Youth Justice Plan 2023-24 be approved.
Reason for Decision: The establishment of a Youth Justice Service was a statutory requirement (under the Crime and Disorder Act 1998). There were certain partners who must form part of the Multi-Disciplinary Team including Police, Probation, Education, Health and Social Work and others may form part of the team and partnership governing Board (in Harrow this is the Youth Justice Partnership [Management Board] which also reports to the Safer Harrow (Community Safety Partnership)). Under the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 the authority was also required to produce (and implement) a Plan (Youth Justice Plan), and this Plan must be approved by Council.
[Call-in did not apply to the decision above as it was reserved to full Council.]
