KUALA LUMPUR: The involvement of juveniles in crime is a new trend which the police and society must give special attention, said Malaysian Crime Prevention Foundation (MCPF) vice-chairman Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye. “We want the non-governmental organisations to have campaigns on crime prevention with interesting activities to get the young generation to participate. “The crime prevention club has also been set up in many schools to make the pupils more aware of the dangers of juvenile crimes,” he said when launching a crime prevention campaign at the Pudu Ulu recreational park in Cheras today. He added there was also a need for more counselling teachers in schools to tackle the problem of juvenile crimes. Lee said that most cases of juvenile crimes was a result of negative peer influence and involvement in gangsterism. According to federal police crime statistics index, from January to October, last year, 9,509 criminal cases involving children were reported compared to 7,647 cases during the same period in 2013 – an increase of 24.3%. The campaign was organised by the MCPF in cooperation with the police, Cybernetics International College of Technology and several other organisations. source:
