Resource: Interactions Between Youth and Law Enforcement
This literature review (PDF, 31 pages), a product of the Model Programs Guide, discusses the research relevant to interactions between police and youth. It describes the prevalence of police-youth interactions, factors that influence such interactions, the role of law enforcement in the juvenile justice system, and the outcome evidence of programs developed to help improve police-youth encounters. Professionals and policy makers can use this resource as they work to develop and improve prevention programs, police-led diversion programs, and community-based policing programs.
