The Coordinated Response to Young People at Risk Program (CRYPAR) was initiated by the Queensland Police Service (QPS) in 2006 in the North Brisbane and Pine Rivers Policing Districts, and later expanded to include Logan and Rockhampton. It recognised that mainstream policing approaches - with their focus on criminal offenders and victims - did not adequately support ‘at risk’ youth in the community. CRYPAR was designed as a whole-of-government initiative which aimed to assist young people who are risk of developing criminal and self-harming tendencies and anti-social behaviour. To achieve this, the program brought together the Queensland Police Service, Queensland Government, and non-government agencies to assist youth in the community who were most at risk.
