Abstract: The research investigates extent of Juvenile Delinquency under the Law of Uganda, a Case Study of Kampilingisa Rehabilitation Center and Naguru Remand Home. Delinquency is not in-born; it is acquired and gradually grows within an individual turning him or her into juvenile delinquents with time, depending on the environment which he lives. Most parents produce children out of choice, when they feel the time is right and are both happy about having them. So juveniles are conceived and born normal children but in most cases the unfriendly and cruel environment in which they are raised changes them to social perverts. On taking juvenile delinquents to RCs, force and various approaches are used but after rehabilitation; the environment that led to the growth of delinquency once again welcomes juvenile. At this point, one would call upon the police and all the stake holders to put their approaches onto the environment that led to the birth of delinquency rather than juveniles. The culture of peace and prosaically behaviors are the wishes to all individuals to juvenile delinquents and this can be explained using analogy of birth. At birth, a child cries because of changes in environment but parents use different approaches to rehabilitate the environment in order to make the born child grow with the peaceful mind and pro social behaviors. Such rehabilitation of environment makes juvenile grow well as an upright human being but the change of environment in the period of growth lead to the growth of delinquency among juveniles. It is from such background that one should strive to rehabilitate the environment together with juveniles rather than juveniles alone.
