and independency treatment so that they can come back to their communities well; besides that, they have

been prepared with skills. The research problem was how about the treatment model of juveniles who have

committed criminal offenses in the LPKA Class 1, Tanjung Gusta, Medan. It is expected that through this

research a treatment model of juveniles who have committed criminal offenses in the LPKA can be found

in the future. The research used normative and empirical approaches. The data were gathered by conducting

interviews with some informants in the Section of Juvenile Treatment of the LPKA Class 1, Tanjung

Gusta, Medan, and with the child prisoners. The result of the research showed that personal treatment and

independency treatment in the LPKA Class 1, Tanjung Gusta, Medan, were performed with group (classial)

and scheduled treatment models. It is recommended that individual treatment model, especially independency

treatment be used in the future, and personal treatment should be done by using classial treatment model.
