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.
