    Arrests of young Maori are on the rise

    Arrests of young Maori are on the rise


    Last year, more than 37 hundred people aged 15 or younger, were arrested.

    73 percent were Maori - an increase from 68 percent in 2014.

    Senior Sergeant Simon King says they're training staff to understand the reasons behind young Maori offending.

    He says they're also looking for ways to develop alternative programmes to avoid patterns of offending.
