Addressing the problems of what to do with youth that commit crimes is an age old problem. There has been many things tried, and now in this day and age there are programs in three categories. They are community based programs, Institutionalization, and aftercare programs. There are two community programs that seem to be most effective and beneficial; these are house arrest, and probation. House arrest is a new form of correction. This method is designed to restrict the person’s ability to go places, and do whatever they want, while at the same time allowing them to stay out of jail and keep their job. This is done using an ankle bracelet that transmits a signal to the local police station. If the signal transmits that the person has left there allow area them the person can be tracked and brought back. House arrest allows a person to be punished without putting them into an institution. This saves a great deal of money, and allows reintegration into society to be much smoother. Probation is an older more proven method used in the community based programs.
