Youth and police, 1998

Youth and police, 1998

Most young people break the law at some stage – challenging authority, transgressing accepted behaviour and even breaking laws are part of growing up. Most crimes committed by youth are minor and do not attract the attention of police. This young man in Manners Mall, Wellington, has done something to attract police attention and is being frisked by an officer next to the open door of a paddy wagon.
