This paper looks at how there are many institutional methodologies targeted at dealing with and preventing youth crime and how some institutions and officials favor coercive measures, while others encourage developmental and assessment programs that promote problem solving. It evaluates how the Police and Citizen's Youth Club of Australia is an example of a developmental institution or agency. It examines how it is an organization formed of sergeants and volunteers, whose purpose and philosophy encourages the use of positive reinforcement as a means to prevent and address youth criminal activity. The organization does not use force and severe regulations to prevent youth crime, but rather uses education and recreational activity to turn youths away from potentially harmful activities.
