Description

Dealing with young people who come into conflict with the law is one of the most important parts of being a police officer. Now in its fourth edition, Youth in Conflict with the Law provides up-to-date analysis on how police handle young persons, while focusing on new and updated legislation, such as the Canadian Victims Bill of Rights, the Safe Streets and Communities Act, and the Child, Youth and Family Services Act. The authors include new material on issues of race, the Black Lives Matter movement, mental health, ethnicity, and social media.

The book encourages students to consider the problem of youth crime within social contexts, and to recognize the facts that lead youth to enter into conflict with the law. This resource is ideal for college police foundations students across Canada.

Editorial Review

“This is a very thorough text. It covers the history of youth involvement with the law and all laws and statutes relating to youth. An all-encompassing reference for this topic.”
