The issue of arresting juveniles, and taking them into custody, has been a problem since the late 1700’s. The overriding question for many jurisdictions is what to do with the wide variety of violators that are so different from other offenders. Correctional experts agree that juveniles should be housed separately from adult offenders, however, disagreement abounds. How should enforcement officers manage a group of offenders with violations that range from mere truancy to mass-murderers? This course canvases the history of the juvenile justice system, and discusses factors contributing to juvenile delinquency, as well as the law enforcement perspective on management of juveniles.
