Juvenile Crime Time: Crime Tracker Kalae Chock Gives Tips To Help Keep Your Kids Out of Trouble!

Posted: Updated:

KALAE CHOCK: It's 3 o'clock in the afternoon; do you know where your children are? Research suggests you might not considering the afternoon hours are a common time for young people to commit crime. 

It's known as juvenile crime time: roughly the hours between 2 o'clock in the afternoon and 8 o'clock at night.  It's typically a time when kids are released from school and are left to their own devices until their parents return home from work.

Research also says that in order to curb this trend, after school activities are especially important.  The after-school program at West Central Community Center in Spokane helps young kids stay busy after school with an open gym and structured playtime and activities. KHQ talked to students who attend the program that say they're thankful for a chance to stay busy with other kids doing healthy activities.

Spokane County Juvenile Court tells KHQ they see kids get into trouble because they're simply bored. They're left alone for a few hours, sometimes with the wrong crowd, and sometimes make a wrong decision that leads them into the court system. 

Juvenile Court Counselors recommend the following tips in helping keep your kids out of trouble: enroll them in after-school activities, keep an open dialogue with them, and know your kids' friends.
