Teens, Crime, and Rural Communities. How Youth in Rural America Can Help Reduce Violent and Property Crimes.
Donovan, Erin; O'Neil, Jean F., Ed.
Featuring the Teens, Crime, and Community (TCC) program, this monograph focuses on youth crime and crime prevention in rural settings. TCC actively involves teens and adults in a partnership designed to reduce teen victimization and to encourage teens to be catalysts of change for community safety. The guide provides teachers, administrators, and concerned citizens with a template for implementing TCC in rural settings. The guide examines the scope of rural crime and its contributing factors, demonstrates the need to involve teens in the crime prevention solution, describes educational practices that help TCC to become an effective and educational crime prevention strategy, provides an overview of the framework, and discusses implementation strategies. Included are results and implications of a third-party evaluation of TCC in rural areas and sources for additional resources. (TSV)
