Department of Children and Youth Affairs
Child Detention Centres
763. To ask the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs the separation policy in place in Oberstown detention centre; the number of times inmates were placed in isolation in each month of 2014, 2015 and to date in 2016. [37194/16]
A copy of the separation policy has been forwarded to the Deputy directly. The separation policy and the other policies for children detention schools are available on the website of the Irish Youth Justice Service and can be accessed at the following web address: www.iyjs.ie/en/IYJS/Pages/WP12000013.
The Oberstown Children Detention Campus is responsible for collating information on the use of single separation; I have therefore referred the Deputy's request for information in that regard to the Director of Oberstown for direct reply to the Deputy.
