th January 6 classes resume Youth Crime II – Slide 4 1. Boots camps as a criminal justice policy. Based on the idea that kids need discipline because they are considered disrespectful. This approach where people need to be strict with young people and address the growing problem of youth crime. It has a certain kind of appeal because it associates with discipline is part of the problem, so it is also part of the solution. 2. Opened in July 1997. This was based on a strict discipline model. It included: drills, physical labour, academics, recreational programs, specialized treatment programs for issues such as substance abuse, anger management, etc. So it wasn’t just about strict discipline, it was also about counselling, treatment, etc. You’d have to be only male, no previous convictions or homicide, or arson, or sex offenses, at least 16, 4-18 remaining in a secure custody disposition.

If we address those problems, this would be a lot more beneficial to society.

This leads to patriarchy) Theme 4: The high rates of women on social assistance, poverty, how this connects with female offending. Many female offenders have been victimized in the past such as sexual abuse, physical abuse, violence, etc. Gender Gap: the idea of the rates of offending between males and females. There has been a reduction in the gender gap
