A police officer who investigated a burglary describes what happened and how the offender was caught and convicted.

There are other clips from the ‘Restorative justice’ series which tell the story of the burglary from the perspectives of the victim and the police.

This clip could be used to start a discussion on the reasons why young people get involved in crime. Reasons could include: resentment towards someone, peer pressure, alcohol or drug dependency, family problems or lack of care, greed and desire for excitement. The clip could also be used in conjunction with information on the type of punishments available to Youth Courts.
