HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS INFOGRAPHIC:

This infographic presents the highlights of the report Alone: The Prolonged and Repeated Isolation of Youth in Custody, which describes our investigation of the use of separate confinement at the two youth custody centres in B.C., located in Burnaby and Prince George. We obtained and analyzed records related to each use of separate confinement in youth custody over a three-year period, from January 1, 2017, to December 31, 2019. During those three years, 110 youth were separately confined 307 times.
