Abstract: Developed by the Youth Justice Board in England and Wales, the Key Elements of Effective Practice series presents best practice models on a range of topics involving the prevention of juvenile delinquency and delinquency recidivism. The series was informed by the latest research, national standards, and existing legislation and will be updated every 2 to 3 years as new research on best practices becomes available. Each series contains three sections geared toward three separate types of users: practitioners, managers, and strategic partners. The manuals are arranged in terms of the Youth Justice Board’s quality assurance process, which focuses on eight core areas reflecting all aspects of service: assessment, individual needs, communication, service delivery, training, management, service development, and monitoring and evaluation. This manual focuses on describing the features of effective Final Warnings, which have replaced the use of police cautions for young offenders in England and Wales since 1998. Final Warnings involve a range of interventions designed to divert young offenders away from further offending and may only be given by police when a young person admits to a nonserious offense. The manual focuses on the most effective means of assessing risk factors for youth who receive Final Warnings, as well as best practices in service delivery and case management.
