Annotation: A TOTAL OF 37 NATIONS WERE REPRESENTED IN A SURVEY OF THE EXPERIMENTS, INITIATIVES, ANND EXPERIENCES OF POLICE DEPARTMENTS IN INVESTIGATING AND PREVENTING JUVENILE DELINQUENCY.
Abstract: THE SURVEY REPORTED HERE WAS SUBMITTED BY THE INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL POLICE ORGANIZATION (INTERPOL) IN 1960 TO THE SECOND UNITED NATIONS CONGRESS FOR THE PREVENTION OF CRIME AND THE TREATMENT OF DELINQUENTS. A BRIEF HISTORY OF INTERNATIONAL POLICE EFFORTS INVOLVING JUVENILES AND INTERPOL'S APPROACH TO THE PROBLEM OF PREVENTING JUVENILE DELINQUENCY PRECEDES SURVEY REPORTS ON THE PRACTICAL ACHIEVEMENTS OF THE 37 NATIONS AFFILIATED WITH INTERPOL. BRIEF DESCRIPTIONS RELATE TO EITHER TYPICAL OR PARTICULARLY INTERESTING ACTIVITIES IN EACH NATION. ALTHOUGH THESE NATIONS SPAN THE GLOBE, EASTERN EUROPEAN COUNTRIES, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF YUGOSLAVIA, ARE EXCLUDED, AND CHINA AND OTHER SOUTHEAST ASIAN NATIONS ARE MISSING. OVERALL, CERTAIN THEMES EMERGE FROM THE DESCRIPTIONS REGARDING THE METHODS OF COMBATTING JUVENILE DELINQUENCY: (1) THE TRAINING OF INDIVIDUAL OFFICERS, (2) THE FORMATION OR LOCAL TEAMS OF JUVENILE DELINQUENCY: (1) THE TRAINING OF INDIVIDUAL SPECIALLY TRAINED OFFICERS, AND (3) THE CREATION OF LOCAL TEAMS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY. THE METHOD MOST FREQUENTLY ADOPTED IS THE FORMATION OF INDEPENDENT TEAMS COMPRISING BOTH MALE AND FEMALE POLICE OFFICERS. DISCUSSIONS ON POLICE TRAINING, A SUGGESTED CURRICULUM FOR OFFICER TRAINING, ADVICE FOR POLICE OFFICERS WORKING WITH JUVENILES, AND COMMENTS ON THE POLICEWOMAN'S ROLE, ARE APPENDED. (WJR)
