Place of Safety & Observation Home (Women and Child Development Department) (Faridabad) on 14th September 2023 .

on 14th September 2023, we at the B.S. Anangpuria Institute of Law organized a student visit to the Observation Home and Place of Safety (Women and Child Development Department) in Faridabad. 

This visit gave the opportunity to our students to interact with the children who have committed crime or are sent to the juvenile correction home owing to some reasons. Our students examined every part of the juvenile correction home. They visited the observation homes, where neglected and delinquent juveniles are kept for a few weeks or until the pending decisions of the cases. Our students noticed how these children spend their lives in jail. They also observed the process of rehabilitation and social integration of children into society. Students learned that the prime purpose of juvenile correction homes is to separate criminal-minded young people from society and provide them a kind of environment where they can improve their unlawful and antisocial mind-set to provide them with the opportunity to become worthy and lawful citizens. 

Some of the key aspects which are taken of at the juvenile correction centres include: 

  • Treatment 
  • Living conditions
  • Food and cleanliness
  • Lighting, radio, and television facilities
  • Reading room and games facilities
  • Medical facilities 

The students were also explained the roles of the Supervising Probation Officer, House Mother, and attended a lecture on the Juvenile Justice Act, 2015 by, Hon’ble Chief Judicial Magistrate-cum-Secretary, DLSA Faridabad.
