JUVENILE OFFENDERS — MONITORING

488. Hon NICK GOIRAN to the minister representing the Minister for Police:

I refer to the minister's response to my question without notice 461, answered on 14 May 2019, in which the minister informed the house that the monitoring of reportable offenders is undertaken by the Western Australia Police Force sex crime division and other operational police in the state, that this monitoring is ongoing, and that the frequency of interaction will vary on a case-by-case basis.

(1) Is any training provided to those required to perform this monitoring?

(2) If yes to (1), will the minister table the document that records the content of that training?
