Annotation: These five papers focus on the remand management process as applied to juveniles in England and Wales, noting that the high levels of detention of alleged youthful offenders in prisons and other secure accommodations contrasts sharply with the successful strategies used in other areas of work with these same youth.
Abstract: The first paper traces the history of the remand process and its problems, presents systems theory, and recommends ways to apply a systems approach to the remand process to improve outcomes. Additional papers consider the crucial decision points that must be considered in adopting a remand systems model based on good practice, the need for interagency cooperation, and techniques for monitoring and evaluating the system as a whole. The final paper discusses the legal framework for each stage in the remand process, including the grounds for detention, reviews of detention, authorization of continued detention, warrants of further detention, warrants for detention after charge, and other topics.
