Extractions: Crime Prevention Award Guidelines for Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts The Boy Scouts of Americas Crime Prevention Program assists neighborhoods and communities in their efforts to prevent crime. When working on crime prevention with youth, help them learn the importance of the following: Settle arguments with words, not fists or weapons. Do not stand around and watch while others are arguing; violence often spreads into groups of bystanders. Learn safe routes and good places to find help in the neighborhood. Trust your feelings; if you sense danger, get away fast. Report any crimes or suspicious actions or individuals to the police, school authorities, or parents. Do not open the door to anyone you do not know and trust. Never go anywhere with someone you do not know and trust. Whenever you leave home, tell parents, relatives, or other responsible adults where you are going, who you will be with, and when you expect to be home. Do not use alcohol or other drugs.

Extractions: BEST PRACTICES Child/Youth Crime Prevention - Essential Components In general, youth violence prevention programs that work: Program components that may not work as well or have mixed results: Use of scare tactics that show videos or pictures of violent scenes Adding a violence-prevention program to a school that is already overwhelmed Segregating aggressive or antisocial students into a separate group Using instructional programs that are too brief and not supported by a positive school climate. Research in the area of drug-abuse prevention suggests that programs should be at least ten sessions long in the first year, at least five sessions long in the subsequent years and at least three years in duration if programs are to be effective. Programs of longer duration are most successful.

Extractions: AUTO THEFT - JOYRIDING AND YOUTH Background Automobile theft is estimated to cost Canadians close to $1 billion each year. In 1998, 165,799 incidents of motor vehicle theft were reported to police - an average of 454 vehicles a day. A significant portion of these cars are stolen for the purpose of joyriding. Joyriding is often thought to be a thrill-seeking prank undertaken by teenagers but it is a serious public safety issue. All too often joyriding results in property damage, injury and even death. Joyriding puts the lives of the individuals involved, police officers and innocent bystanders at risk. The Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP) is dedicated to the support and promotion of efficient law enforcement and to the protection and security of the people of Canada. Much of the work in pursuit of these aims is done through the activities and special projects of a number of committees and through the active liaison with various levels of government and departmental ministries having legislative and executive responsibility in the matter of laws and policing. The project Joyriding and Youth: Communicating the Facts is being supervised by the Crime Prevention Committee. Objectives The National Strategy on Community Safety and Crime Prevention, through its Business Action Program on Crime Prevention is funding the CACP $100,000 to develop public education, learning and resource materials around the issue of joyriding, aimed at youth. The overall objective of this project is to address the root causes of crime among youth by providing police and others with additional tools to assist them in working with young people to prevent joyriding. Youth are a key resource in working with their peers to prevent crime, including joyriding, and as such, young people will be involved throughout this initiative.
