Explain why the criminal justice systems philosophy is different for juveniles than it is for adults. Discuss the important historical cases which have been decided concerning the rights of juveniles. After discussing historical cases, select one case to brief regarding the facts, circumstances, and impact the case has had on the handling of juvenile offenders by public safety personnel. Further talk about how your assigned agency, New Jersey Port Authority or New Jersey State Police Department if you can’t find information for the other, works with juveniles to provide community programs.
