A new ju­ve­nile bail fa­cil­ity touted for the Kim­ber­ley has been met by the De­part­ment of Jus­tice with sur­prise.

Shire of Derby/West Kim­ber­ley chief ex­ec­u­tive Jonathan Throssell said the coun­cil had moved to pro­vide in-prin­ci­ple sup­port for the pro­posed fa­cil­ity be­ing driven by Derby Po­lice.

The pro­posed site, at Jarl­madan­gah Burru Abo­rig­i­nal com­mu­nity, would re­duce fis­cal and time bur­dens on Derby po­lice who had to es­cort ju­ve­niles to the Ba­nana Well fa­cil­ity, the clos­est which was about 300km away, Mr Throssell said. If that fa­cil­ity was full po­lice would have to es­cort ju­ve­niles to Perth’s Rangeview re­mand cen­tre.
