Streetwise Programme: New Cases

Streetwise Programme (SWP) is a 6-month voluntary, preventive and rehabilitative for youths who associate with gangs.

The programme helps such youths make a fresh start in life through a series of individual counselling, group work and family counselling session.

Enhanced Streetwise Programme is a pre-court diversionary programme for youth offenders who play a minor role in gang-related offences. These youth offenders could be let off with a stern warning if they complete the programme successfully, in lieu of court prosecution.
