As a result of the Banskia Hill Detention Centre riot in January 2013, the Department of Corrective Services used part of Hakea Prison, a maximum security male (adult) prison to house some of the juvenile detainees. In a Court decision handed down in May 2013 about the legality of transferring detainees to Hakea, Chief Justice Martin concluded “there was simply no other option”.
