wrongful arrest or detention of young people in NSW.
This project is open for referrals from or on behalf
of young people who have been detained unlawfully, arrested on out-of-date
information, or who have been subject to excessive force.
CIDnAP is currently running several cases, and
a few have already settled with positive results.
