... s, researchers used purposive sampling. To measure the validity of the study, the researcher used source triangulation by comparing data from observations and interviews, conditions with people's perspectives, and interviews with document content. The results showed that the communication process in the implementation of handling street children has not been implemented properly. This occurs because there are conditions in the delivery of information that are still ineffective. Furthermore, resources related to staff, information, authority, and facilities also each have shortcomings so that they lack effectiveness in terms of policy resources. In the context of disposition, it shows that policy implementers have not yet optimal responses in implementing policies on handling street children in North Jakarta.
