Abstract:Nearly every week newspapers write about problems with ‘youth groups’. Some of these groups only cause a little noise in their neighbourhood. However, currently serious problems like property crime and use of violence seems to be inevitable. Earlier research already presents that the nature, size, spread and background of youth crime often consists of crime within the so called youth groups (Beke, 2006: 127). In this case it could be necessary to attack these serious problems with a specific ‘group treatment’. Many actors are working together to realize public safety. These safety partners are also depending on each other within such a group treatment. This master thesis focuses on the local cooperation between municipality and police regarding to the approach of problematic youth groups. Both partners play a different part in this group treatment. The police are more focused on their operational tasks aimed to preventive and repressive strategies, while municipalities should take their ‘role of control’ within the cooperation (Diependaal, 2007: 388-389). Their task is to coordinate and to control the safety partners within a group treatment. However, according to the police, they do not decently accomplish this role of control. Separate tasks need to be adjust to each other which is the accountability of municipalities. But to what extend both priorities and interests agree to each other? Because of the difficult situation concerning this local cooperation between municipality and police within a group treatment it is interesting to research these difficulties of the cooperation. The concepts of dependency and control are essential within this problem.
