Among the many crime-prevention campaigns often held at schools are such as video shows, exhibits organized criminal activities and obliging complainants to police officers to present giving a speech on the crime, the consequences and punishment of the offender. Therefore, awareness campaigns should be held to raise the awareness of teenagers who have been very worried over the past.
