Annotation: THIS EXAMINATION OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE POLICE AND SOCIAL WORKERS IS BASED UPON THE BELIEF THAT THERE ARE FUNDAMENTAL PROBLEMS - SCEPTICISM, MISTRUST, OPEN HOSTILITY - BETWEEN THE TWO GROUPS NEEDING RESOLUTION.
Abstract: ILLUSTRATED ARE THE PITFALLS AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR CO-OPERATION FROM EXPERIENCES IN DEALING WITH CHILDREN AT RISK, FROM RECOMMENDATIONS MADE TO JUVENILE COURTS FOR TREATMENT AND DISPOSAL OF DELINQUENTS, FROM THE FRUSTRATIONS CAUSED BY THE LACK OF ADEQUATE RESIDENTIAL FACILITIES FOR CHILDREN IN CARE, AND FROM THE WAY THE MENTALLY DISORDERED ARE DEALT WITH AT POLICE STATIONS. THE AUTHORS MAINTAIN THAT MUTUAL STEREOTYPING AND PERPETUATED PREJUDICES COULD BE OVERCOME THROUGH A DELIBERATE ATTEMPT BY EACH GROUP TO EDUCATE AND CONVINCE THE OTHER OF THEIR RESPECTIVE VIEWS AND ROLES.
