Objective: Explain how to process a potential juvenile delinquency case. You are a police officer responding to a disturbance call. Upon arriving at the scene, you discover that two adolescents are restraining a younger child. The two adolescents inform you that the younger child was caught stealing a toy from a neighbor’s backyard, and they held him until you arrived. The child is 8 years old and has not had any prior contact with the juvenile justice system or your police agency. The neighbor from whom the child took the toy is not home. The two adolescents state that they want you to arrest the boy because he is a problem in their neighborhood. The boy is crying and pleading with you not to arrest him and that he will never do it again. The boy lives about two blocks away from where the incident occurred and states that his parents are home. Prepare to discuss within 200 word how you would process this case:
