A Comparative Analysis of Standards and State Practices: Police-Juvenile Operations. Volume Two of Nine.
The Task Force to Develop Standards and Goals for Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention was initiated in the Spring of 1975 by the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA) of the U.S. Department of Justice. The efforts of this task force resulted in nine reports, each one dealing with one aspect of the Juvenile Justice System. This volume addresses a number of issues concerning the police and juvenile justice and delinquency prevention. They concern police policy formulation, scope of police authority relative to detention and arrest of juveniles as well as protection of children, the application of laws of arrest to juveniles and adults, discretionary powers of police relative to such arrests, possible mechanisms for relationships between police agencies and the court, and alternatives for organizing police services to handle juvenile matters.
