Two largely separate populations of children and young people are known to Youth Offending Teams (YOTs): the first at risk of committing serious harm to others and the second for whom safeguarding concerns may have been identified. One of the early concerns voiced by many YOTs in relation to Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) has been that, despite their inclusion as an agency with a ‘duty to cooperate’ through the 2003 Criminal Justice Act, arrangements on the ground have generally remained adult focused. This is in part a product of the fact that YOTs took their place at the MAPPA table some time after the police and the probation service had established closer working relationships. This chapter highlights key principles that underpin the development of public protection within youth justice in England and Wales. It also discusses some of the developments stemming from key partnerships (for instance between the Youth Justice Board and the Parole Board).
