This Policy Framework has been developed at the request of the National Steering Committee on Community Safety and Crime Prevention. This Policy Framework applies to youth ages 12 to 18. This Policy Framework is the result of the contributions of many individuals across the country.

Extractions: By Ish Theilheimer, with files from Murray Angus Despite a hellishly warm climate, a small but articulate movement is starting to snowball in communities across Canada. The climate is public concern over youth crime. You don't need a pollster to know that one of the "hot buttons" for widespread public insecurity is youth crime. Public panic grows as headlines report sensational crimes. Despite this harsh climate, there is growing support for youth crime remedies that focus not on punishment and reprisal but on the root causes of crime. A lot of people believe we need to "get tough with young people," says Memorial University of Newfoundland Professor Joan Pennell. She is a member of the National Crime Prevention Council, a federally mandated commission that has made headlines by calling for stronger and better-funded social programs to prevent crime. Throughout her career, Dr. Pennell has helped remote and Aboriginal communities research and act on solutions to crime and violence. " 'Getting tough' means locking young people up, and when you lock them up, you disrupt all the more their position in the community." When they are released, many offend again. "This approach hasn't decreased criminal activity." "Panic breeds bad social policy," says Barb Hill of the John Howard Society in Kingston. Her organization works to help offenders rehabilitate themselves and to reform the justice system.
Extractions: Crime Prevention Programs A.C.T. (Abolish Chronic Truancy) places prosecutors in the schools to work with administrators, teachers, parents and students to intervene at the very beginning of the truancy cycle. The A.C.T. program started in 1991 in one school in South Central Los Angeles. In 1993, the program became fully implemented with the assignment of three attorneys to the program on a full time basis. There are currently 343 schools in 36 school districts involved with the A.C.T. program in Los Angeles County. The Bad Check Program tracks down bad check writers, returns the money to the victims, and deters future offenses through a diversion program and possible criminal prosecution. Aside from benefiting merchants and consumers, this program is designed to remove some of the load from overburdened local police. Courageous Citizens Awards Program Domestic Violence Hotline ) - In November of 1994, the District Attorney established the Los Angeles County Domestic Violence Hotline to help victims find a safe way out of their abusive environments. Callers to the hotline are routed directly to trained shelter personnel with a choice of six languages. Environmental Scholarship Programs - As the result of the prosecution and settlement of a major environmental crime case, a college scholarship fund was established at five high schools in the area affected by the crime. Graduating seniors attending Bell Gardens, El Rancho, Montebello, Pioneer, and Schurr High Schools are eligible for the scholarships, which are annually awarded to students who have demonstrated a serious interest or commitment to environmental issues during the course of their high school education. This interest can be demonstrated through achievements in science, social sciences, or community activities involving air pollution, waste disposal, recycling or environmental education. Scholarship funds have also been established at the Environmental Physical Sciences Magnet Center at Reseda High School and the Los Angeles Conservation Corps.

Extractions: Advanced search 5 August 1999 The Centre for Adolescent Heath at the University of Melbourne is conducting a large study for the Victorian government to measure a series of factors that predict the danger of adolescents becoming involved in crime. This work, undertaken by Dr John Toumbourou, is based on a United States community prevention program which has been in operation since 1994 and has now been adopted in over 400 communities in the US and was recently taken up in the UK and the Netherlands. "Communities that Care" (CTC) is a comprehensive community-based prevention strategy based on research on predictors of health and behaviour problems. CTC assists local groups to establish intervention strategies and provides training and support to ensure the implementation of the program. Preliminary studies have been carried out in Victoria, and a consortium including the Women's and Children's Health Care Network and the Rotary Club of Melbourne plans to trial the CTC strategy in Victoria in early 2000. Dr Toumbourou said "research is clearly linking the major causes of youth crime and drug abuse to the experience young people have growing up in their families, schools, peer groups and communities. The CTC approach brings local communities together to monitor conditions and adjust services to maximise the chances for healthy youth development. In US communities the CTC program has led to a big increase in prevention spending which we dearly need in Australia if we are to seriously tackle problems of crime, violence and drug abuse".
Extractions: 26th February 1998 Synopsis This paper provides details of action taken by Council to reduce street prostitution and youth crime in our City. Background The problem of street prostitution along Canterbury Road began approximately 18 years ago when prostitutes working in a brothel on Canterbury Road would come out onto the street and solicit clients from the nearby St George Hotel. To the anger of nearby residents, street prostitution flourished along Canterbury Road, and brought with it other problems, such as used needles and condoms being discarded in schools, churches, front lawns of residential homes and on streets. Council on 8 February 1996 formed the Street Prostitution Committee to address these problems. Street Prostitution Committee The Committee was set up to investigate street prostitution and to formulate resolutions to resolve this problem. The Committee was made up of Councillors, senior local Police representatives and Council staff. Local State members of parliament were also invited along to meetings.

Extractions: Home Virtual Library Publications Resource Centre ... Mailing List Registration Form Young People Say Previous Table of Contents Next Report of the National Youth in Care Network Probably the biggest issue for most of the youth I spent time with, was finding a voice and being 'heard' by the experts and the professionals. A strong sense of the people 'in power' not understanding the real issues. A lot of anger and lack of trust of adults. Also a lot of hope and energy for real change. YOUTH delegate Rights of the Child On any given day, there are 45,000 to 60,000 young people in care in Canada. When we think about crime prevention and community safety, too often the most marginalized youth, youth in and from care, and street youth, are viewed as the criminals - as youth who place communities at greater risk. Our society is more likely to consider a juvenile prostitute to be a criminal, rather than a victim of child sexual abuse. People consider a young drop-out to be a failure, not a young person who may need support and educational alternatives that will increase his or her chance of finding employment and a fulfilling life. Young people say life on the streets, chronic unemployment, poverty, substance abuse, and jail are not enviable situations, or ones in which they want to stay.

Extractions: By Carrie Richmond Yukon youth experienced yet another fun winter of sun and snow thanks to Const. Eyvi Smith of the RCMP and his Youngriders program. This innovative program allows at-risk and underprivileged youth the opportunity to experience prime outdoor recreation. Every weekend during the winter Smith and his band of volunteers venture out to Mount Sima with a handful of anxious rookie snowboarders. Smith, who has worked with troubled youth for a number of years, says that giving young people positive activities they are interested in is a good way to keep them out of trouble. "It's a healthy pastime and alternative to drugs and alcohol. Then there is the self-esteem issue. Once they have gotten to a point where they are comfortable snowboarding their confidence level just skyrockets," Smith says. In the three years the program has been running Smith has noticed a significant change in many of the kids. "I've already seen direct results from a number of youth. I see them taking the initiative to get to the hill and trying to find the money to get their own equipment. So a few of them have graduated from our program and they are still out there.
