Juvenile Criminal Careers

Violent Criminal Careers of Young People

GEMMA CLEMENT, from the LANCASTER UNIVERSITY, made a contribution to the 2012 Annual Conference of the European Society of Criminology, in the category “Crime and Society,” under the title “Violent Criminal Careers of Young People”. Here is the abstract: This presentation looks at the violent offending behaviours of young people using data from the England and Wales Offenders Index 1973 birth cohort. Using Latent Trajectory Analysis, distinct groups of violent behaviour were found and were demonstrated graphically. The likelihood of violent reoffending within a two year follow up period has also been examined, using trajectory membership as a predictor . The study also investigates the effect of the covariates of sex and ethnicity on the membership of the trajectory groups. This study has obvious implications for the way violent offending by young people is perceived, with the analysis suggesting that violent offenders be treated in a specific way, and not the same as other offending behaviours. Finally the problems encountered during the course of the study are discussed, along with any recommendations for future work that could be carried out.
