This paper is of a combined character; summary and research, as it contains comparisons and research in a critical way, so it includes content and important psychological aspects of criminal actions that lead the juvenile person to conflict with the law, including factors which directly or indirectly affect this category of society to be involved in criminal activity.
Even more fundamentally, it has been possible to include the comparative character of the actions of the relevant institutions that treat this category of society in the criminal aspect, respectively the theoretical-practical aspect and the legal basis of these institutions.
The paper highlights the advantages and difficulties that arise between law enforcement agencies for the treatment of this category of persons in a criminal process, as well as legal shortcomings, especially bylaws and especially emphasizes the need to actively engage the social worker and psychologist in the criminal process, as a necessity which, despite the reform of the legal infrastructure, still remain outside the necessity of active involvement in the juvenile proceedings.
