Central Juvenile Court Index is a card index that was compiled from statistical report forms on juveniles who appeared before the Children's Court and were born between July 1957 and May 1960 and between July 1964 and June 1965. It provides information on the person and their court appearance(s).
Access to these records is restricted. People wishing to access restricted records can either contact their nearest Community Services Centre to apply or they can post the information; an application form must be completed together with proof of identity provided.
The following information is provided on the Central Juvenile Court Index: the name of the juvenile; their address; birth date; prior and final court appearance; date of court appearance; charge or complaint; and results.
According to Connecting Kin (1998), there are 48 boxes containing the Central Juvenile Court Index.
