Organisation Rangeview Remand Centre (1993 - )
- Care Provider, Government-run, Juvenile Justice Centre and Stolen Generations
Rangeview is a remand centre managed by the Department of Justice.
[Taken from the Western Australian guide Signposts:]
The Longmore Remand and Assessment Centre [see separate entry in Signposts] had, for many years, been under enormous pressure from excessive admissions and the development of what subsequently became Rangeview was a response to the inability of Longmore to cope with increasing numbers of young people entering the Juvenile Justice system. "Planning has advanced for the construction of a new Remand Centre. However, further developments are currently dependent on the selection of a suitable site." (Annual Report of the Department for Community Services, June 30th 1990).
Records of young people in secure detention at Rangeview up until 1 July 1993 when the facility came under the control of the Department of Justice are held by the Department for Child Protection.
While access to records is restricted to protect the privacy of individuals, people are encouraged to enquire.
