Report on Youth Delinquency – Key Trends and Upstream Measures
Since our inaugural publication of the National Report on Youth Crime (2007-2013) in 2015, we have enhanced programmes, legislation and research to protect our youth and keep them away from crime, rehabilitate youth offenders and prevent reoffending, as well as better reintegrate youth offenders into their families and society.
In this second publication written by members of the NCPR, Report on Youth Delinquency – Key Trends and Upstream Measures, we present youth arrest statistics from 2014 to 2018, discuss the refinements and enhancements to existing strategies and programmes, and consider further upstream measures to better tackle youth offending at the onset.
