There are two Youth Aboriginal Justice Officers (YAJOs) situated in the Youth Court Registry. The YAJOs are responsible for the development, delivery, monitoring and review of a culturally sensitive service to Aboriginal youth, Families and the Aboriginal Community.

YAJOs provide a range of services and information to Aboriginal young people appearing before the Youth Court by undertaking a variety of roles which contribute to the efficient, effective and more culturally responsive operation of the Youth Court. This often involves accompanying young offenders and their families during Court hearings.

The YAJOs also assist the Court by helping Aboriginal youth and their families to communicate effectively and directly with the presiding judicial officer, to ensure that informed decisions can be made regarding the care, correction and guidance of Aboriginal youth.
