Youths cause damage to three detention centre cells

On Friday, April 18, three youths allegedly damaged a bookshelf and televisions.

They are reportedly being managed by the Department of Corrective Services.

Inmates were moved back to the centre in October after a multi-million dollar upgrade after a riot that caused significant damage.

There are about 5140 prisoners in the WA prison system, with Banksia Hill the only detention centre for youths aged from 10 to 17 years in WA.
