Family meeting with youth justice officials

Family meeting with youth justice officials

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.
