The adolescent years can often be a precarious period for today’s youth. Confronted with a volatile mixture of coping with raging hormones and dealing with peer pressure, teenagers can often find themselves in situations where one small misstep could lead to unnecessary violence. Though various pre-emptive educational programs are offered in schools, government information suggests that additional preventive measures are necessary to combat the dangers young people face today.
A Statistics Canada report on youth victims of police-reported violent crimes revealed that, among all age groups, youths aged 15 to 17 reported the highest rate of violence. Though this should be enough cause for concern among parents, what is even more alarming is that, according to a General Social Survey study, police are less likely to be notified of crimes against teenagers than those against any other age group.
Teens may have several reasons for being hesitant to contact the police: They may feel as if the police will be annoyed by their call. Sometimes teens may be in doubt as to whether what they’ve experienced qualifies as a crime, and are worried that when the police do arrive, he/she will be mocked or even punished for calling. Or finally, teens may be concerned that the culprit will find out about their call to the police.
Guardly, a mobile personal safety app, can help teens in cases like these. By allowing teens to connect in real-time with their personal safety network of family and friends, potentially dangerous circumstances can often be entirely avoided. And if teens are unsure about contacting the police, their safety network can collaborate instantly through Guardly’s emergency response site and provide crucial advice.
