BANGKOK (NNT) - Problems sometimes continue, when juveniles who have committed crimes and have spent time in a detention center are released back into society. The Department of Juvenile Observation and Protection has witnessed many of them commit further crimes and repeat the cycle. So the department has launched a program specially designed to prevent that happening.

 

The program is a result of a collaboration between the governmental social service and private social service organizations which have been working to support groups of juveniles after the period of detention.

 

The program provides education and inspiration by providing the juveniles with consultations, social services, rehabilitation, education, and other diversions so that the juveniles will be inspired and set their own goals as good citizens.

 

Minister of Justice, Somsak Thepsutin, has disclosed that in order to make changes in the behavior of juveniles, many sectors are required to work together. The teenagers receive benefits such as job training, or introductions to other occupations they are interested in, so that ultimately, they can live normal lives alongside other people in the community. But without achieving the right mindset, these youngsters are likely to commit more crimes and be back in the cycle again.

Easy. Don't let them out

(sarcasm end)

 

Better judge whom to send in prison and have the sentence  appropriate to the crime.

 

Would probably mean a quite different jail population (More of the kind of that Red Bull guy, and more murderers)

It would be more beneficial to work with the junveniles prior to their offending, save money in the longterm.

Plenty of studies on this, but governments of most nations fail to impliment and fund prevention programs.

Jails make money for governments and private companies in western countries, they have shareholders to pay dividends to

So why is this not in place to stop them offending in the first place?
