CRM 007 - Delinquency and Juvenile Justice

Semester Hours: 3
This course is intended to examine in depth the nature, causes, and control of juvenile delinquency. This course will also examine in depth the theoretical explanations for delinquency and how a child’s relationship with key social institutions influences their behavior. Most importantly the course will provide an orientation to the issues, policies and procedures which makeup our system of justice for children. The function and legal responsibilities of the Police, Probation, Juvenile Court and corrections system will be studied. Emphasis will be on societal forces that bring children into the Justice System including child abuse, and gang participation. Current programs and policies directed at the prevention, treatment, and control of delinquency will be examined.
