Woodlands Juvenile Justice Centre operates a risk management strategy to protect both staff and young people in its care. Individual risk assessments are carried out on all young people in the centre and these are constantly reviewed and updated as required.
All operational staff must make themselves aware of the individual crisis management plan (ICMP) and any other risk assessment for each young person in their care. They also carry a Blick personal alarm at all times. They are trained in therapeutic crisis intervention (TCI) and physical control in care (PCC) techniques, and suitable protective equipment is available to staff during PCC operations.
