AbstractCertain media portrayals have been massively condemned for contributing to crimes by publicizing and glamorizing criminal entertainments. These glamorized presentations lead to copycat or contagion of criminal proceedings. Television Crime Shows (TCS) can be categorised among those medial productions. Crime procedures and its detailed technical steps are few risky contents of television crime shows. This exposure may affect the viewers through observations of risky behaviours. The current investigation is an attempt to focus on the risky behaviours of adolescents who are exposed to television crime shows. The certain exposures may have resulted for adolescents to become juvenile delinquents. Juvenile delinquency is a matter of grave concern worldwide and affecting the social systems at large. The objective of the current research effort is to identify the crime learning inclinations provided by TCS. Adolescents can probably learn the crime method through TCS. Furthermore, this research leads to examine and define the other negative and positive effects of TCS on the behaviours of adolescents. Crime Learning Behaviours (CLB) are not mostly attached to crime viewing, rather other Socio-Economic Factors (SEF). For example, family or friends might be another source in CLB as suggested by intensive research efforts. It is important to identify the main factor affecting more the CLB of adolescents from different sources of observational crime learning (i.e. TCS, Friends, Family). The findings of this research effort identify that a large number of research efforts referring to juvenile delinquency are focusing on aggression. It emerges that there is a need to conduct more research to identify the development of “Crime learning Behaviours” of adolescents through observations.
