Young Criminals were Problematic under Age 12

Of the 600 leading criminals in Amsterdam, half already behaved highly problematically before they reached the age of 12. They often have friends who are also criminals, or members of their families who have police records. About half of all these criminals are psychiatrically disturbed, or have minor intellectual limitations. The municipal health service (GDD) considers that the only way to keep these people straight is lengthy personal care by the authorities, not only for the youngsters, but also for their environment.
