Keelong Juvenile Justice Centre

Details

Keelong Juvenile Justice Centre was located at Unanderra and run by the Department of Juvenile Justice. It was formerly the Keelong Remand Centre. The name change occurred when the remand centre was transferred from the Department of Family and Community Services to the Department of Juvenile Justice. Some of the boys remained at Keelong during the transfer. Keelong closed in 2009.

Keelong Juvenile Justice Centre was closed in 2009. In 2010 it was alleged that the decision led to overcrowding in other juvenile justice centres, and the housing of boys with serious offenders.

In 2013 the Keelong site was converted to a youth centre, run by Father Chris Riley’s Youth Off The Streets Programme.
