Centre for Youth Crime Prevention

It starts with YOUth

The Centre for Youth Crime Prevention (CYCP) provides Canadians with evidence-informed and age appropriate crime prevention messages, information, tools, and programs to prevent youth crime and victimization.

By working with partners across Canada to provide factual information, the CYCP aims to help communities motivate youth to:

  • think critically;
  • build skills that support positive decision making; and
  • make changes in their lives and communities.

Reducing youth involvement in crime, both as victims and/or offenders, is a priority for the RCMP. For more information, visit the Strategic priorities page.
