Description

Employing a historical perspective, this well-regarded author team examines the relationship between police and youth offenders according to the Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA) and addresses the challenges officers face when dealing with young persons, the way police are perceived by young persons, and the strategies police use to positively interact with youth offenders. Procedures for arresting, questioning, detaining, processing, and sentencing young persons are clearly explained.

Ideal for college police foundations students in Canada, Youth in Conflict with the Law walks readers through the various legislations established to protect young persons. This book encourages students to consider the problem of youth crime within social contexts, and, ultimately, to recognize the factors that lead youth to enter into conflict with the law.
