Peer and parental pressure:
At schools, collages or universities, we should reduce bullying, and let students
know that the staff and organisation is there for them.
Organising more activities showing the difference of art and crimes.
We need to reduce this by having more protection for the youth and convincing
them to understand the crime and consequences .
There should be more security around our community. Also our community
members should keep an eye out for any signs of not only vandalism, but robbery,
violence, drug dealing and assaults as well as other types of crimes.
Getting out of hand:
To stop these violation to get of hand, we need to make our youths aware on the
consequences by punishment the first time. This may sound harsh but it is the only
way be which they will understand.
Janhavi : Good morning Parramatta, today we have a wonderful guest in our studio. She is the
local lady who has witnessed crimes committed by youth in our society and has taken further
research on this issue.. Of course, we are talking about Miss Riddle! Now lets move on to our
topic, so Chantelle what is the issue in our community.
Himani: Well Jessica the overall problem of this issue is that this certain generation is rather
disrespectful of their surrounding environment , easily pressured by peers/ parents, and
because of all these reasons they find that their last resort is to commit crime.
Janhavi: Hmmm… Why do you think the younger generation are being influenced by this?
Himani : The youth are confused by what's crime and what’s not. They are getting pressured
and bullied and are not fully understanding the consequences if they get caught.
Students may be overpowered by stress and as many artists say, art is a way of relieving stress
therefore innocent juveniles are confused by Graffiti and Art.
Janhavi: Do you think there is any way of ceasing this crime committed by the youth?
Himani: I think that we should organise more activities showing the difference between graffiti
and vandalism. We should let schools, high schools, universities or colleges know that our staff,
teachers, parents, friends are there for them, because usually they are feeling too much
pressure and that forces them to commit these crime.
Janhavi: Well thank you Ms Riddle, and we hope that the crime stops, or at least ceases. Well
that’s all for today. Have a good day, and we’ll see you later.
Facts and Figures
The total of Parramatta's population is 178,549, out of this 83,563 are men
and 83,293 are women. About 3,043 people of those are over the age of 85,
and 71174 are aged between 0-25 , in other words are YOUTHS!
Our issue is, Reducing youth related crime, in order to understand the reasons
behind this violation to our society, we first need to collect data on this topic.
Parramatta has been ranked 37 out of a huge 154 local government areas with
a population more than 3000 for the crime of Break and enter- Dwelling. For
Liquor offences in Parramatta, we were ranked a horrible 93 out or 154. This is
a very disappointing result. Parramatta was ranked 89 for damage to property,
this includes, graffiti as well as unauthorized demolition. For the robbery of
motor vehicles, Parramatta was ranked 25 out of 154, this may mean damage
or theft of motor vehicles.
All of these result are very disappointing! We HAVE to do something about
Top 3 resources
1) Newspapers: This site has been very useful for all the
crimes committed. It has given us the exact detail of
all the crimes we have mentioned through out this
2) Internet: It has given us the dates, and information on
when crimes were committed, and the whole history
of crime that has been marked on this presentation
has been based on information from this site.
3) Crime Statistic@myboot.com: This was extremely
useful for recording all of the populations, and
documentation of our crime and determine our
numbers of crimes committed.
First Hand Investigation
The Problem: The issue we are dealing with is the amount of Youths who are
related with crimes around Parramatta. This is mostly because they do not
understand the consequences or are being forced by peer, parental, environmental
or other pressure. This also causes the environment to get damaged.
Aim: The aim of our experiment is to
make the youth understand the
concept, and consequences of their
crimes. In order to keep everyone, and
the environment as well as the youth
committing the crimes safe, we have to
stop this violation!
Hypothesis: I think that after we have
done our solution, the crime rates in
Parramatta will drop by a great number.
This will mean that slowly, Youth related
crimes will soon enough stop, as the
amount of peer and parental pressure
How we will do it: We will do this by hiring people to talk to the youths in
schools, collages, or Uni’s. They will be a group of expert speech makers who are
positive and understanding towards younger people. This will cause the young to
feel comforted and feel that they can talk to some-one who gets what they mean
and reassures them.
Drugs, Alcohol, Exposure, Horrible role modelling, THIS IS the
reason why crime is spreading through our society!
This absurd violence to our society is not just going to STOP,
Parramatta, YOU need to play your part!
Stop and think, if our generation NOW is like this, what will be the
state of our future generations.
To STOP the crime, you first need to understand the crime.

At schools, collages or universities, we should reduce bullying, and let students know that the staff
and organisation is there for them. To stop these violation to get of hand, we need to make our
youths aware on the consequences by punishment the first time. This may sound harsh but it is
the only way be which they will understand. Nowadays people commit crime ever so freely.
Vandalism, murder, abuse, physical harassment and the list goes on.
Organising more activities showing the difference of art and crimes. We need to reduce this by
having more protection for the youth and convincing them to understand the crime and
Crime rates will increase faster than ever and Parramatta will suffer!
In seven years time or so, if no action is taken against this problem,
it may get doubled, or even TRIPLED!
It is because of exposure to the younger generation that is causing
them to get confused on what is right and what wrong. If a older adult
who is a delinquent, the youth starts to feel that what they see is
what they should do.

How does the issue affect the community
The issue, youth related crimes, can affect the
community in many ways. There are obvious danger
with perhaps alcoholic or violent teenagers who
might just want to start a fight. This can cause great
insecurity and an unsafe barrier toward the families
and locals. Delinquents vandalising personal
property isn't a very good thing at all. Parents and
families who live in a rented house don’t need to
pay extra money for the deflection on there
secondary property. This crime doesn't have a good
affect and can be severely threatening the safety of

Dear all Youths
I am writing this letter as I would like to discuss something very important with you. Your
behaviour and attitude towards the law of Parramatta is rather ignorant and stubborn.
Of course we understand that, yes, once in a while you have the freedom to go to a party, have
some fun, hang about with friends, but this is NOT an EXCUSE for you to commit CRIME!
You committing crime, does not only impact your life, but to the whole society along side
you too. The innocent bystanders, get injured, people get harassed, tension rises, and the
good name of Parramatta gets stained. Many people die because of this stupidity, many get
depressed, and MANY commit SUICIDE! Why should the innocent people of Parramatta have
to suffer through your idiocy? And WHAT DO YOU GAIN? You don’t gain anything! So
why this nonsense in the first place?
No matter what anyone says, you know, inside you that what you are doing is Wrong. Step
up and change for a better future, YOUR better future!
I hope that you now understand your wrongs and are ready to change!

More attention given from teachers parents and possibly locals and neighbours
If teachers gave more attention to students and talked to them about there problems and try to get them to
open up or such can stop youth who do crimes because of there tough lives. if teachers give support and
notice if a juvenile is being bullied to do crimes, if the action is taken that can cease the crimes that are
caused by peer pressure. Parents should be more aware of where the children go , epically at the later times.
Is your child going to a sleepover or going to a dark alley to meet up strangers and criminals to break the law.
Possibly if locals or neighbours see youth related crimes to report to local community, if done so the
community can cease the issue by giving more security or cameras which moves on to our next solution.
Security and safety 24 hrs. cameras
Having security guards or surveillance cameras can make a change and difference to the frequency and the
common youth related crimes. If studies and careful investigation and research is taken to realise where
specifically will we need the extra security. The main places youth related crimes happen are in subways,
general house or building property, trains and buses, parks and other locations. Using security guards or
guarding and surveillance cameras will possibly persuade the delinquents that they can not get away or not
face the consequence:; that they are caught. If more youth relies the high security they are less eager to
preform crime as it is much more easier to get caught
The main reasons youth create crimes are because of being bullied, peer pressured, thinking they will be cool
and popular, family problems , confused between art and vandalism and it goes on. If more community
fundraisers or festivals or stalls to support the innocent criminals who really meant no harm. Activities like
“support the bullied” could save tear and horrible consequences. If the community support the bullied or
helpless delinquents could realise they are not on the own and cease the bully and the bullying issue which is
causing them to do inappropriate crimes.
Some juvenile criminals do it because they are the bully , they think it is cool when its plain shame to destroy
property and vandalize. If these people are directly informed with there consequences then there is a
possibility of decrease in youth related crimes

History of the Issue
The history of this issue goes back many years. The
first criminals were the convicts. The convicts were
accused of faulty or unreasonable crimes. But
nowadays our crimes are getting serious. Before
people were just stealing a small amounts of food,
just to feed their hungry children. But now, people are
vandalising other people’s properties. Now people are
KILLING other colleagues and people. Crime is getting
out of hand
We have compared the population group youth and the rest of the society.
Graph And Comparing population grouping
Crime itself went back all the way to Greek gods and convicts but
specifically youth related crimes may have started around the
1990’s. from underage drinking to vandalism the youth have
developed into the worst.
Sydney was the scenario for kidnapping.
Drug and alcohol
inappropriate gang assault
In 2013, Parramatta, a man, 22, named Patrick Crowe was stabbed at a bus stop by 3
juvenile girls, and 2 juvenile boys, around the same age as Patrick. This was remarked
to me by a primary teacher, who has apparently witnessed part of this crime, named
Lee Candelario. Lee recorded: “He was one of my past student’s. I was there for his
funeral.” The criminals are now in jail, and the court is STILL discussing whether they
are to be hanged or not.
On March 12 2011, a body of a unidentified woman was found floating around in a
suitcase in the Parramatta river. It was first spotted by residents who were apparently
out for a walk. Police commented: It’s just a black cloth suitcase. It’s quite a large one
though. It was quite a sight. Police swarming around the river, endless numbers of
divers plunging in. The park is usually filled with bike riders, athletics, sport groups,
and that day it was bigger then ever. The police interrogation continued for a long
time. They were asking nearly every single person spotted around the river. Later that
afternoon the body was sent to be examined clearly for any clues of the women’s
Secondary and primary source which shows reason towards problem
From the very beginning of youth related crimes, this issue
was much easier to deal with. Most juveniles who committed
crimes had family issues or some other personal problem. The
frequency and reportion of youth related crimes back then
was very rare. These days around most suburbs there are at
least a report related to youth crimes per day. Back then
there where only a few possibilities to why children where
committing crimes but now there are many reasons.

Compare and contrast
Brainstorm the evidence
• After analysing and collecting a range of primary
and secondary sources the evidence is stating that
youth related crimes is becoming more and more
frequent. Possibly 1/8 of the phone calls involving
police are related to youth related crime. Around
Parramatta more and more unauthorized graffiti
has been noted. Some of these crimes are life
threatening and dangerous. Youth related hasn’t
been taken seriously but there can be change.

Recommendations to solve the problem
• Bullied- this is one of the main reasons youth related crimes are caused. Juveniles
charge there anger , depression, fear, etc. onto crimes, society and the community.
They think doing crime can some what help them. If action is taken such as
campaigns, support the bullied public holidays or a public bullied awareness week.
• Confusion- some aspiring artists are confused between art and vandalism. If in
school, teachers, staff and principal take time in explain this thoroughly or even use
it as a writing task or study material , whatever can help students more aware of
the difference between vandalism and art.
• Peer pressured-sometimes you just need to trust yourself. Parents and teacher are
the main supporters here because your friends could be pressuring you and you
may not realise and take it as a joke. Parents and teachers should be aware of the
student friend groups and should specify to students on how to tell when your
being peer pressured
• Of choice- some students or youth know and fully understand the consequences,
under no pressure, no confusion, no influence but still commit crime. These
delinquents should be stopped. After night patrolling or extra security at parks or
dark alley can cease this issue
• Overall to all these problems , starting a website, conference with the person,
support weeks or days, news articles etc are a great way to solve the problem
Predict How bad this Problem will Get:
As you all know after reading previous research notations,
Parramatta’s crime rate is gradually rising. As much as we would like
to ignore this fact, it is time to face the truth.
In seven years time or so, if no action is taken against this problem, it
may get doubled, or even TRIPLED!
It is true that this problem is getting sorted and therefor staying at a
moderate level, but if no major operation is not taken, we will have
no control over it at all!
My opinion on why this issue is getting out of hand:
I simply feel that this issue has become a problem in our society because of
pressure and bad role modelling. A youth does not start off a criminal, no-one
does. It is because of exposure to the younger generation that is causing them to
get confused on what is right and what wrong. If a older adult who is a delinquent,
the youth starts to feel that what they see is what they should do.

This is one of the examples of why crimes are committed. of course we
understand that murder and kidnappings are different to bullying, but we would
merely like to show that we believe, that this is how youth are easily influenced by
