Young Offenders: Location

Volume 508: debated on Thursday 25 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice pursuant to the answer of 14 July 2009, Official Report, columns 261-62W, on young offenders: sports, what percentage of (a) 12, (b) 13, (c) 14, (d) 15, (e) 16, (f) 17, (g) 18 and (h) 19 years old in each young offender institution were detained within (i) 20, (ii) 30 and (iii) 40 miles away from their homes in each year since 2002. (323896)

The following tables show the percentage of 15 to 19-year-old male and female offenders in young offender institutions (YOIs) who were detained within 20 miles, 30 miles and 40 miles of their home area, as of September 2005 through September to 2008. Information for 2009 has been extracted as of May. Data before September 2005 are not available. Those aged 12 to 14 are not held in YOIs.

All prisoners are asked for details of their home address on first reception to prison and on discharge from prison. About 60 per cent. of prisoners (both male and female) are shown to have given a recognised address. If no address is given, various proxies are used to determine distance from home, including next-of-kin address and committal court address.

Closeness to home of young offenders aged between 15-19 held in young offender institutions between 2005 and 2009
