Policing and Young People Paperback
Edited by Colin Rogers, Tim Read
Part of the Policing Matters Series series
An accessible and up to date introduction to the key theme of policing and young people.
This text gives a comprehensive overview of the issues involved in working with young people as offenders, suspects, witnesses, victims and citizens.
It looks at perceptions of the young, and the role of the media in the context of current debates around anti-social behaviour, gangs and the family.
The impact of multi-agency approaches on the way that young people are dealt with by the police and other agencies is considered, and additional chapters discuss police discretion and ethics, and safeguarding vulnerable young people.
