National is keeping New Zealand safeA re-elected National-led Government will:
- Establish a Defence-led Junior Training Academy based at the Waiouru Military Camp. Judges will be able to order YSOs who commit serious subsequent offences to attend the Academy for one year.
- Allow Police to issue instant infringement notices to parents of children under 14 walking the streets without supervision between 12am - 5am
- Tighten bail requirements, increase the use of electronic monitoring, and remove the ability for these serious young offenders to be released early from any youth justice custodial sentences.
National is the law and order party that is committed to keeping New Zealanders safe, supporting victims, and addressing the drivers of crime.
