Hi there. I am trying to search for a theory to guide our program evaluation of juvenile crime. A friend recommends the Routine Activity Theory. Could anyone kindly give me a clue about this theory?

Hi, there! I heard a focal point of examination for the fields of delinquency prevention is how adolescents spend their leisure time in the hours after school. However, I am not quite sure about the logic behind this statement. I wonder if anyone could kindly help me with it? Thank you very much!

Dear Dr. Mel, may I ask another question about CSO? I wonder if the CSO scheme only serves as a means of punishment.

Hi everyone! It is well recognized that crime and delinquency of young people place considerable economic loss on society, from an economic standpoint. I am trying to find an appropriate way to estimate these costs in Hong Kong. Appreciate it if you could give me some advice to calculate. Or maybe provide me with some practical examples.

Following your previous suggestion, I have searched some theories to explain youth delinquency and the absence of parental supervision after school hours and found Hirschi’s social control theory. Yet, how to link youth’s behavior to social control is a huge challenge for me (I do believe in “the person in environment” theory). Grateful if you help me with it!

Hi there. I am conducting a program evaluation of our services for juvenile crime. Yet, surprisingly I found that the most likely time for a juvenile to commit a crime is weekdays, instead of weekends. It doesn’t make sense to me… Is there anyone who could give me a hand?

Could you please help me confirm something about the community service orders (CSO) scheme? I heard that under CSO, a court may make an order requiring a person of or over 14 years of age and convicted of an offense punishable with imprisonment to perform unpaid work for several hours not exceeding 240 hours within a period of 12 months under the supervision of a probation officer. Can I say that as the activities of the CSO scheme?
