Major staff numbers quitting justice system

The number of staff quitting the state's youth justice system has hit 100 out of a total of 400 in less than a year.

The news comes after yet another attack on a staff member, this time a worker suffering a fractured eye socket and cheekbone at Malmsbury on Thursday.

Staff who have approached the media say the work environment is dangerous, they are assaulted daily and they feel forgotten about.
