Korowai Maanaki failing at basic security - Children's Commission

From Morning Report, 8:38 am on 28 July 2021

There are still security problems at a youth justice residence in Auckland where two young people escaped through a window and went on the run last year.

The Office of the Children's Commissioner has inspected the Korowai Manaaki Youth Justice Residence, a secure facility for young offenders and those waiting to go to trial.

It found many improvements were needed.

Youth Affairs reporter Katie Doyle has the story.
