  • PLS Title Police-led diversion of low-risk youth reduces their future contact with the justice system
  • PLS Description Youth misconduct and misbehavior is a normal part of adolescence and that misbehavior sometimes crosses the line from disruptive or problematic to delinquent. Nationally representative surveys of youth in the USA have indicated that minor delinquent behavior is normative, particularly for boys. The normative nature of minor delinquent behavior raises the question of how police should respond to minor delinquent behavior in a way that is corrective, but also avoids involving the youth in the criminal justice system beyond what will be effective in reducing future misbehavior. Police diversion schemes are a collection of strategies police can apply as an alternative to court processing of youth. Diversion as an option is popular among law enforcement officers, as it provides an option between ignoring youth engaged in minor wrongdoing and formally charging such youth with a crime. Police-led diversion has the potential to to reduce reoffending by limiting the exposure of low-risk youth to potentially harmful effects of engagement with the criminal justice system. This review examined whether police-led diversion and traditional processing of youth have different effects on rates of official delinquency.

  • PLS Title Interventions can reduce school exclusion but the effect is temporary
  • PLS Description School exclusion is associated with undesirable effects on developmental outcomes. It increases the likelihood of poor academic performance, antisocial behavior, and poor employment prospects. This school sanction disproportionally affects males, ethnic minorities, those who come from disadvantaged economic backgrounds, and those with special educational needs. This review assesses the effectiveness of programmes to reduce the prevalence of exclusion
  • Title School-based interventions for reducing disciplinary school exclusion
  • Spanish PLS Algunas intervenciones para reducir la exclusión escolar funcionan, pero su efecto es temporal
  • Spanish PLS Description La exclusión escolar se asocia con efectos no deseados en el desarrollo de los niños. Estudios previos muestran una asociación consistente entre la exclusión y el bajo rendimiento académico, conducta antisocial y dificultades de inserción en el mercado laboral. Esta sanción afecta de manera desproporcionada a los varones, a las minorías étnicas, a aquellos que provienen de ambientes socioeconómicos deprivados y también a los estudiantes con necesidades educativas especiales. Esta revisión sistemática analiza la efectividad de los programas de intervención para reducir la prevalencia de la exclusión escolar.
