Annotation: The Bryn Hafren Girls School in Barry, South Wales has implemented a school-based youth crime prevention panel to increase young people's awareness of local crime problems and to encourage their involvement in crime prevention work.
Abstract: In addition to describing the organization and activities of the panel, this profile outlines management and staffing issues, discusses program costs and funding, and identifies program achievements and problems. A typical action plan for a panel, which meets once weekly during the term and consists of fourth, fifth, and sixth form students, involves the following steps: selecting a topic of most concern, surveying students, analyzing results, establishing prevention schemes, and monitoring and evaluating results. Several crimes and crime-related problems have been identified and a number of practice initiatives created. Initiatives include work on under-age drinking and alcohol abuse as well as shoplifting and solvent abuse. 1 table
