Unit 2 Assignment: Improving Police Interactions and Juvenile Interactions
Police are the first point of contact juveniles have with the Juvenile Justice System. A positive interaction between the groups is one factor that helps to keep juveniles out of handcuffs. The most significant sanction an officer might impose on a juvenile in a positive interaction would be a verbal warning; however, strained relations based on miscommunication and preconceived notions could land one or more juveniles in handcuffs and on their way to jail. Positive communication; therefore, is key to this relationship. In this assignment, you will discuss police and juvenile interactions.
