This study aims to identify and analyze criminal law policies in an effort to overcome criminal acts committed by minors in the future, including the role of penal mediation. The research method used in this research is normative juridical. The results of this study conclude that the regulation on the settlement of criminal acts/child delinquency as an effort to overcome child crimes has been regulated in the Criminal Code (KUHP) and Act No. 3 of 1997 concerning Juvenile Court. The criminal law policies contained in the Criminal Code and the Juvenile Court Law have several weaknesses, namely in the formulation and application stage, at the formulation stage there is dualism in the regulation regarding the determination of the age limit of children, In addition, at the application stage there are conflicting provisions in the provisions regarding sanctions that can be imposed on naughty children. Policies for formulating criminal law in the future must be more optimal and able to provide legal protection for children in conflict with the law, one of which is by formulating provisions for penal mediation in an effort to resolve cases of child crimes.
