General note

The Mayor's Committee on Juvenile Problems was convened in April of 1976 in order to "discover what course of action be pursued as a result of the recent serious fire as R.C. Palmer School." As a result of this incident the Committee resolved to discuss and study the following issues: the coordination of youth resource combat juvenile delinquency problems; the provision of "holding facilities"; the availability and source of money to achieve the above; that the family should be involved in treatment of the delinquent; that there be some solution to the approximately fifty "hard-core" offenders which are costing the community a great deal of money. The Committee resolved that a survey be conducted by Mr. S. Buemann regarding available youth resources and possible sources of funding. The survey was also to consider: concern regarding possible extreme "vigilante" action by citizen groups resulting from the recent serious fire...; the possibility of the creation of work/school treatment centre in Richmond and; the frustration of law enforcement because of lack of holding facilities.
