Judicial response, parenting support, how to prevent minor delinquency in Reunion?

Youth delinquency at the heart of a National Refoundation Council, initiated by the prefecture yesterday, Friday May 3. If the phenomenon does not explode in the department, it is evolving in its form. Judicial response, support for parents, various proposals have been formulated.

How to supervise minors? How to give meaning back to parental authority? Police officers, gendarmes, representatives of local missions or National Education participated yesterday, Friday May 3, in the Refoundation Council dedicated to the prevention of youth delinquency.

A delinquency which does not explode in Reunion, but which changes in terms of age and seriousness of the facts. According to the public prosecutor, Véronique Denizot, delinquency in the department follows the same trend as in France. She thus evokes a rejuvenation of the minors involved and a ” seesaw ” towards violence, racketeering, extortion, robbery with violence, sexual violence or even membership in gang phenomena.

This is much more worrying and much more specific to take into account in order to provide an appropriate criminal response.

Juvenile delinquents are becoming younger and younger, this is one of the observations made, hence the need to act as soon as possible, believes Jérôme Filippini. The prefect of La Réunion underlines that if delinquency does not explode in La Réunion, in terms of figures, the age of delinquents is changing.

Sometimes it’s minors aged 10 or 12 who commit stupid things at the start, who are dragged along by slightly older minors, and sometimes by young adults who use them, particularly to organize trafficking.

A delinquency which takes place against a backdrop of drug trafficking, alcohol and zamal consumption, specifies the State representative. ” We must protect these young people, particularly minors, first as potential victims, before considering them as what they sometimes become, that is to say, juvenile delinquents. “, he adds.

Of the “ identification of worrying situations “are put in place with National Education, but more reactions are necessary in the event of school dropouts, which reflects other things, recognizes the prefect of Reunion.

For Jérôme Filippini, “ there is a difficulty for parents to fulfill their role today “. It evokes ” the impact of social networks which have come to educate “the children” in place of the parents themselves, who have less influence ” on them. Parents in social difficulty, or who have not been to school, may also have difficulty accompanying their child to school. For the prefect of Reunion, we must act as soon as possible on parenting , namely the ability of parents to support their children.

In Reunion, many young people are becoming parents. many high school girls are mothers very young, during their minority “, underlines Véronique Denizot, the public prosecutor.

It’s not easy being a parent, whatever your age. It is not only the care of the newborn, it is that of the young child, it is that of the slightly older child, it is that of the adolescent obviously. “

Beyond the findings, the 150 participants, gathered in workshops, formulated proposals in the field of parenting, judicial response, education and even professional integration.

Among these proposals, one around parenting support which consists of the creation of a toll-free number intended for parents. ” I think it’s something that needs to be done “, estimates the public prosecutor, in an effort to offer help and support to parents, as soon as possible.
