8 Jan – Police say they have quelled a disturbance at the youth justice centre at Parkville in Melbourne overnight.
A police spokeswoman said officers were called to the centre on Park Street about 8:00pm on Saturday.
She said a number of units had remained at the scene overnight, including the critical incident response team, riot police and the dog squad.
A State Government spokesman said he was unable to comment on the operation.
No further information was available.
The incident is the latest in a series of disturbances at the facility.
In November, the State Government moved more than a dozen juvenile inmates to a maximum security adult prison after a riot caused up to $1 million in damages.
The decision to send the juveniles to the Barwon Prison was found to be unlawful, leading the state to re-gazette a unit within the prison as a youth justice facility.
