Preventative measures

Maria Tcherni-Buzzeo, associate professor of criminal justice at the University of New Haven in Connecticut, pointed to the prevalence of firearms in major cities as part of the current juvenile crime issue, which she noted has decreased over the last three decades.

There is this natural instinct to say, '오, kids are out of control. 무슨 일이야?’ … But whatever is driving this trend in homicide — it’s clearly different from the trends in other violent crime because every almost every other violent crime has been down,” 그녀가 말했다. “And so there must be something that is different about homicides specifically. And actually another category of crime that has been going up is mass shootings. And so my guess is that it probably has something to do with guns, because why do we see other violent crimes not affected as much?”

It takes a village,” including services and opportunities, as well as treatment and counseling, to prevent juveniles from committing crimes and keep them safe in their communities, Tcherni-Buzzeo continued.

Renee Williams, executive director at the National Center for Victims of Crime (NCVC), said juvenile victims of crime need to receive adequate support after a violent encounter to ensure that they do not fall into a cycle of violence.

It is a learned behavior,” 그녀가 말했다. “It is not something that is natural for the juvenile.

Williams added that it isa pretty high statistic of juvenile offenders that have gone through children’s services and then become offenders.

While different services for victims of crime differ jurisdiction by jurisdiction, Williams suggested crime victims seek therapy, victim advocates that are often offered by prosecutors or law enforcement offices, and centers that offer help to those who have been subject to violent crime. 추가로, NCVC’s free hotline connects crime victims with specialists trained to help victimsidentify servicesand compensation applications to ease the recovery process.
