Statistics show that on average, offenders under 25 were involved in 2.4 incidents per offender compared to the overall average of 2.0 incidents per offender.
Attributable to Georgie Crozier:
"Violent young offenders do not fear the police, the courts and certainly not Daniel Andrews and his ministers.
"Part-time Police Minister, Lisa Neville and Jenny Mikakos, the Minister for Families and Children, are in a race to the bottom as to who is the worst minister in the Andrews Labor Government.
"Our youth detention centres have become a recruiting and breeding ground for youth gangs that are growing in size, influence and brutality. We are seeing alarming rates of reoffending in youth crime and an under-resourced police force to deal with this problem.
"Our courts have become a revolving door for violent criminals and it's time for Daniel Andrews to slam it shut.
