The Area One Police are trying to steer youths in western Jamaica away from crime by engaging them in a youth summer camp.
Community Safety and Territorial Officer for Hanover, Deputy Superintendent Ainsley McCarthy says the inaugural Youth At Risk Camp is geared towards changing behaviour.
He says youth camps are held every year throughout Area One, which comprises Westmoreland, Hanover, St. James and Trelawny.
Meanwhile, DSP McCarthy says a number of the children have been showing signs of attention deficit disorder.
Over 40 young people are attending the camp, which is sponsored by USAID Comet-two, RIU Hotel and others.
The camp ends with a graduation ceremony on Friday.
