About this product
- DescriptionAn 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.
