Inside Canada's Youth Jails
Gordon Cruse
Introduction by Barry Bowman

For corrections officer Gordon Cruse, the youths he supervised were more than juvenile offenders. They were unique individuals with their own circumstances, serving time, separated from family and friends. By listening well, Cruse connected with them.

His examination of the youth justice system chronicles the history of youth custody centres, government policies, sentence leniency, judicial education, social work, and the Youth Criminal Justice Act. He applauds the efforts of Chuck Cadman, whose tragic loss of his son led him to work to improve victims’ rights. With loads of good advice for parents, this engaging narrative is recommended for students, school counsellors, social workers and the legal community.

Proceeds from this book go to support the Reena Virk Youth Justice Award, presented annually by Camosun College. The Reena Virk Award is presented to an eligible student enrolled in the Camosun College Faculty of Criminology, who has an interest in young offenders.
