The aim of this brief is to compare police-referred YJCs, court
referred YJCs and Children’s Court matters on the time to
finalisation (i.e., the number of days from referral/charge date to
conference/court finalisation date), and assess the contribution
of index offence- and/or offender-related characteristics as
potential confounders. (excerpt)
