A 5-year project "Juvenile Justice Reform" was launched in
Ivano-Frankivsk. On this occasion there were held workshops where
representatives of education and law enforcement agencies have developed an
appropriate cooperation agreement. From now on each educational institution
will have a designated school police officer.
Colleagues from Canada helped to implement the
project. The project director said that the main goal of the system was to avoid
getting minors involved in conflict with the law.
"The purpose of today's seminar was to find
ways to prevent juvenile delinquency - says the director of the project in
Ukraine Tanya Sanford Ammar. - We focused on law enforcement bodies because it
is the department of criminal police for children designed to prevent juvenile
offenses. And also we focused on the schools where teens spend most of their
time. So we decided to combine these two structures to improve the prevention
of juvenile crimes. "
During the workshop, to each Director of the school
was presented a police officer who will be assigned to that educational
institution. School police officers will not be always there because each of
them will have 5 or 6 schools.
