Juvenile offending: specialisation or versatility

ISSN: 
0817-8542

Abstract

Offence specialisation among juvenile offenders in New South Wales is examined by considering a number of questions. These include: do juvenile offenders tend to commit the same type of offence, or consistently switch between offences over the course of their offending careers; and do patterns of juvenile offending remain stable or change over a career?
