The Oxford handbook of Juvenile and Juvenile Justice
Early intervention has a pivotal role in keeping minors from getting to a life full of criminal activities.
The authors of the book focus on the wide issue of criminal activity among the youths. Among their greatest concerns is the reduction of crime among the youths. In case the minors get caught in a criminal act and serve their sentence, it is the responsible of the correctors to offer support to the minors to prevent a re-offending.
It is hence imperative to keep the justice system for the minors as quick as possible hence the need to ensure each jurisdiction has juvenile criminal courts.
Preventing re-offending by the minors takes up specific steps to ensure the minors return to a responsible crime free life. The authors recommend a personalized approach since every young person is vulnerable and in constant need for personalized support. For instance, the aggressive minors need to enroll in a class to help them curb their anger outbursts that may be the leading cause of their criminal offenses.
Educational and training programs are among the recommendations made by the author needed to reintegrate the minor back to their communities. The reintegration process may be to get back to schools and universities, or even secure a job opportunity.
The authors emphasize on proper guidance and support for the young offenders. Such support programs include providing shelter, food, work opportunities, and availing networking opportunities to mentors.
