Youth Justice Board chair aims to tackle racial disparities in criminal justice system in England and Wales

Too many schools, police forces, councils and courts are hiding behind “a veil of complexity” to excuse their failure to reduce the disproportionate number of black and minority ethnic children in the criminal justice system, according to the first black chair of the Youth Justice Board (YJB) in England and Wales.

Keith Fraser, who worked for the Metropolitan police and West Midlands force for 32 years, rising to superintendent, said tackling this disproportionality would be one of his top priorities.

In 2010, 28% of children in custody were of BAME origin, but in March 2020 the figure was 51% – despite white children making up 76% of young offenders.

Black children in particular are more likely to have mental health needs and be from a deprived area, where they are more likely to be arrested and more likely to enter the criminal justice system. Once there, they are more likely to return: last year, 47.1% of black young people reoffended, an increase of 4.6% compared with ten years ago.
