About Us

Carl A. Bartol, Esq. - Founder
Carl A. Bartol, Esq.
The Prevent Delinquency Project was founded by Carl A. Bartol, MPA, Esq., a New York attorney employed by the County of Westchester, who has prosecuted cases involving juvenile delinquents since April 2001. Frustrated by a system which is inherently reactive in nature, targeting children who have had contact with the police or become the subject of formal legal process, Mr. Bartol set out to find ways to prevent delinquency, rather than respond to it. Relying upon his experience as a prosecutor, counselor in one of the nation's toughest maximum security facilities for youth, and over ten years as a field investigator in the government and private sectors, Mr. Bartol created the F.A.M.I.L.Y. Model of Parental Supervision, the teaching of which ultimately ripened into the Prevent Delinquency Project. Mr. Bartol's tips for parents and methods of investigating the activities of troubled teens have been published in Our Children (April/May 2005), the magazine of the National Parent Teacher Association; PI Magazine (April 2007), the trade journal for private investigators; Westchester Family (September 2008); and Juvenile Justice, a Guide to Theory, Policy, and Practice, 7th Edition (December 2010), a leading college textbook.
