Mayor speaks following visit to Juvenile Justice Centre

I visited the Juvenile Justice Centre, Bangor on Wednesday 14 August 2013 to find out more about the centre, issues faced and meet young people on the road to rehabilitation.

I met Paula Jack, Chief Executive of Youth Justice Agency and Phil Tooze, Director of Custodial Services.

I greatly valued the visit and look forward to some innovative leadership during my year as Mayor to encourage greater understanding and a stronger public focus on the benefits of rehabilitation. Commitment and dedication by staff at the centre was admirable.
