Crime Prevention Programmes for Youth at Risk | Western Cape Government

Crime Prevention Programmes for Youth at Risk

Description:

The Department of Social Development Crime Prevention and Support Programme aims to provide a range of specialised probation services to persons (children, youth and adults) in conflict with the law and their victims in order to reduce recidivism, through:

  • social crime prevention programmes to create and sustain a positive social environment, address the social risk factors of crime and violence in high-risk areas and increase resilience to these risk factors;
  • a range of reintegration programmes to children and adults in conflict with the law who completed community-based and/or residential programmes to promote stable interpersonal relationships and  reduce their chances of re-offending;
  • Adult diversion and accredited child diversion programmes

These services are offered in collaboration with service delivery partners.
