The Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice, led by UFV’s Yvon Dandurand, created a new draft model named “Model Strategies and Practical Measures on the Elimination of Violence Against Children in the Field of Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice” which was released on May 16th, 2014.
This systemically oriented model aims to provide a friendly and interactive approach for criminal justice practitioners when working with children and youth in the criminal justice system. It attempts to recognize the unique circumstances presented when children come in contact with the system. Designed as a guide for practitioners, the model provides a way in which to deliver a high standard of crime prevention and human rights advocacy. The hope is that the model will lead to greater consistency in the application of the law and policies for interacting with children.
