Background and Aim: The phenomenon of juvenile delinquency is one of the most important challenges in societies that imposes destructive effects on the family and society. On the other hand, the media play a very effective role in reducing or increasing crime in society. The purpose of this study is to explain the impact of mass media on juvenile delinquent behaviors.
Method: This research was done using the descriptive-analytical method in the way of library study.
Results: The findings indicate that the mass media can not be considered as a direct cause of crime. But it can be said that these media outlets bring out the potential of children's criminal talents. Meanwhile, video and virtual media are effective in juvenile delinquency through the display of violence and unhealthy and perverted communication.
Conclusion: The results show that the impact of each mass media in reducing or increasing juvenile delinquency is variable. Before the creation and entry of satellites and cyberspace into the lives of citizens, television had a great impact on reducing and increasing juvenile delinquency. Of course, in Iran, due to the government's control and control over the content of television programs, this media has taken more steps to reduce juvenile delinquency. In contrast, media such as satellite and networks related to virtual space, due to the lack of a regular legislative framework and lack of adequate control and monitoring of their content has had a great impact on the growth of juvenile delinquency.
