Young people, crime and community safety : engagement and early intervention

RACV Club, Melbourne
25 February 2008 – 26 February 2008

Conference aim

Many young people are disproportionately involved in risk-taking, antisocial behaviours and other activities which compromise their safety and the safety of others. They are also highly at risk of experiencing reduced opportunities in life through the influence of such factors as low educational attainment, early school leaving, involvement with the law, low socioeconomic status, ethnicity and disability.



This conference was organised by the Australian Institute of Criminology in association with the Victorian Safe Communities Network.
