I think one of the best ways to keep adults out of the prison system is to invest in them before they become an adult. While this will not work in every case, there is a large group of criminals that start their criminal career at a young age due to poverty and lack of supervision and guidance. If this group is not reached at a young age there is a good chance that they will be back in the system as an adult and they may be in and out of the system for most of their life. It is good to see that we are looking for a better solution than deterrence through incarceration.

I totally agree with your statement. An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. Trying to establish social control seems to me to be the better way of dealing with juvenile delinquency than punishing them without showing alternatives.
