This is part of a broad research that sought to find out the perceptions of street children on law enforcement agents. This study investigated the behaviours of street children that attracted the attention of law enforcement agencies. Children who live in the streets due to lack of adult figures who give them guidance behave in ways that are against the laws of the country. Such behaviours attract the attention of law enforcement agencies who are mandated by the state to make sure all citizens of the state live according to the expectations of the law. The main research objective was to identify the activities of street children on the streets that attracted the attention of law enforcement agencies. The study used qualitative methodology.
