Juvenile Issues

JUVENILE SERVICES

 

The position of Juvenile Officer encompasses many different duties and responsibilities. Currently, Police Officer James McGill serves as the department Juvenile Officer. This assignment is in addition to his regular duties as a Patrol Officer.  

http://glenrockpolice.com/pics/8135WS.jpgP.O. McGill joined the G.P.R.D. in January of 2008 after serving with the N.J.I.T. Campus Police Department in Newark, NJ.  In 2014 he was selected to serve as the department’s Juvenile Officer.  In this role, both proactive and reactive measures are taken in addressing juvenile delinquency and crimes committed by juveniles. The Station House Adjustment Program or (SHA Program) is used for juveniles in special circumstances involving minor non-violent offenses to help avoid the establishment of a juvenile record. In partnership with the Detective Bureau, incidents involving juveniles are reviewed on a case by case basis to determine the best course of action for the juvenile.  In partnership with parents, the schools, juvenile courts and other social services the GRPD seeks to assist in providing a positive environment for the youth in our community.

Underage Drinking

Teens are at far greater risk of death in an alcohol-related crash than the overall population, despite the fact they cannot legally purchase or publicly possess alcohol in any State. High-visibility enforcement of underage purchase, possession, and provision laws can create a significant deterrent for violation of youth access laws, reduce underage drinking, and decrease alcohol-related crashes. Above all else, parental responsibility is key to educating and protecting our teens.

Anti-Bullying

Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems.

In order to be considered bullying, the behavior must be aggressive and include:

  • An Imbalance of Power: Kids who bully use their power—such as physical strength, access to embarrassing information, or popularity—to control or harm others. Power imbalances can change over time and in different situations, even if they involve the same people.
  • Repetition: Bullying behaviors happen more than once or have the potential to happen more than once.

Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.

There are three types of bullying:

  • Verbal bullying is saying or writing mean things. Verbal bullying includes:
    • Teasing
    • Name-calling
    • Inappropriate sexual comments
    • Taunting
    • Threatening to cause harm
  • Social bullying, sometimes referred to as relational bullying, involves hurting someone’s reputation or relationships. Social bullying includes:
    • Leaving someone out on purpose
    • Telling other children not to be friends with someone
    • Spreading rumors about someone
    • Embarrassing someone in public
  • Physical bullying involves hurting a person’s body or possessions. Physical bullying includes:

Hitting/kicking/pinching
Spitting
Tripping/pushing
Taking or breaking someone’s things
making mean or rude hand gestures
