Likewise, the legal awareness of the general public or the local community in many ways can be seen as a symptom of a crime or crime. Theft that occurs at this time can be caused by the difficulty of finding work, due to the number of people who do not match employment opportunities, many people who drop out of school, because a school graduation certificate is a formal requirement in finding a job.
