There are several ways of dealing with young offenders. One is for the youth and his or her family to attend a meeting with a police Youth Aid officer and sometimes other relevant officials. They draw up a plan which holds the young person accountable while attempting to prevent further offending. This young female offender and her mother are meeting with a Youth Aid officer (at right) and members of the Feilding and Districts Youth Board.
