One of the RCMP's five strategic priorities is to reduce youth involvement in crime, whether as victims or offenders. The current priority issues are bullying and cyberbullying, impaired and distracted driving, substance abuse, and youth violence.

In order to reduce youth crime and victimization, the RCMP aims to:

  • support sustainable long-term responses;
  • support approaches that are consistent with the Youth Criminal Justice Act;
  • focus on risk factors, prevention and early intervention; and
  • promote youth engagement and empowerment.

To help achieve these goals, the RCMP focuses on: 1) Outreach and Engagement and 2) Intervention and Diversion.
