How many youths are in detention in the NT?

No youth detention facilities in residential areas: MLAs
Ok, so I did a search and NT Families have the data on their website.
There are fewer than 50 youths in detention in the whole of the NT!
How can this not be managed?
What is going on? 50 kids is two classrooms at many town schools.
I can’t get my head around how youth detention can get so out of hand when the stats are so small.
Surely, there are far more cost effective ways to punish / rehab youths who have offended.

Gallery and library: political game vs solutions
What a croc.
The whole fiasco is ridiculous. How many rate payers even notice this rubbish going on? Time for Mr Ryan to pack up. He shoulda left with Rex. Both have left this town in a quagmire.


Town Council: New dawn for transparency
Which staff performance?
Not sure if old mate picking up rubbish in the river should be judged the same as a director in charge of the road reseal and footpath budgets.


Now that the Rock can’t be climbed, visiting it will cost more
At least you get three days of entry for the ticket. Too bad that it’s about $250 of camp fees for the same time.


Anzac High: No plans yet for what will replace it
100% agree that some Town Council members want the gallery built at ANZAC. And it would be further along if others in the room had not blocked it.

They had better build the gallery there now. Rugby happy to shift to fields behind the Central Middle School.
