Abstract:In 1971 the author and several assistants conducted a survey in this field. It showed a clear need for a police educational program regarding juvenile delinquency. The police admit to a lack of understanding of delinquent behaviour. A course of instruction aimed at better preparing the police who deal regularly with juveniles is feasible and should be considered by the authorities.
