great translations, here are the place names from your text: Kuopio (♥), Satakunta, Pori, Pieksämäki. :)

also, Itä-Suomen is more like "Eastern Finland's".

oh and i've just noticed, here eri puolilla is more like "in various parts of"... it doesn't always literally mean one half.

So to each police department, the advice from the boys was to become something like an advisor, and from now on to change the passive attitude towards the problem -- to switch the objective to be more of a pro-active relationship; this was named the "direct delivery model."


問題が残り、将来に不安を感じるケースにつ いて、保護者らの了解を前提に、所轄所の少 年担当の警察官や地域のボランティアらが連 絡をとる。
Problems remained, for the cases with an uncertain future, the advisor's understanding was assumed to be that the police department's youth counselors, the regional volunteers and others would contact the youths.
