A thirteen year old was apprehended in the Waikato after avoiding police from Hamilton. The boy,13 was driving the car without headlights on and was spotted and ‘chased’ shortly after 1.00am.

The September 2016 MSD CYF Report has now been received and makes very positive reading. A couple of important points:
100% of the learners attending the programme did not reoffend whilst on the programme – a remarkable statistic really because this was a really high risk cohort and for them not to reoffend is outstanding. As an addition, to date, Jan 2017,we have not received any information to the contrary to suggest that any of them have reoffended yet – amazing!

The report states that the programme is “value for money” which completely debunks any comment about the programme being expensive – we are a mid range service with ‘off the chart’ success – definitely value for money!!

Thirdly, the report also states that there should be many more referrals with the change in policy meaning that MSD CYF now has responsibility for young adults up to and including 18 years of age, so we look forward to many more referrals and increased funding.

Fifteen learners aged between 15-36 arrived with their supporters and were warmly welcomed by Kaumatua Piripi and Judge Jelas. What an interesting, diverse group – 12 out of the 13 have EBA offences – I don’t see NZ getting better at diverting drunk drivers or encouraging better behaviours, we seem to be getting even more drunks on the road. Looking forward to a great course though, the interviews were very positive.
