Combating Juvenile Delinquency

Use the Internet and Strayer databases to research your community’s current efforts to deter or prevent juvenile delinquency through incarceration programs or other sanctions.
Write a two to three (2-3) page paper in which you:
1. Identify at least two (2) juvenile delinquency reduction efforts / programs currently in operation in your community.
2. Determine the main sociological theories that underlie these interventions that shape your community’s public policy for delinquency prevention.
3. Propose one to two (1–2) ideas that you believe would improve your community’s juvenile delinquency prevention efforts. Justify the response with examples that illustrate your ideas being used successfully in other communities.
