Summary Young people aged between 15 and 19 years commit three times more offences than any other members of the Australian population. Certain types of offences are committed disproportionately by young people; juveniles are more likely than adults to come to the attention of police, for a variety of reasons. Compared to adults, young people are also more at risk of a range of problems conducive to offending, including mental health problems, alcohol and other drug use, and peer pressure due to their immaturity and reliance on peer networks. What makes juvenile offenders different from adult offender.
