Review of self inflicted deaths in custody (18-24 years)

The Harris review considered 87 self-inflicted deaths from 1 April 2007 to 31 December 2013. It examined the evidence about the range of vulnerabilities that apply to young adults in custody. The review concluded that more needs to be done to support young adults both before and after they have contact with the Criminal Justice System. The report calls on the government to make changes to the care and management of young adults in custody.
