The article is devoted to the idea of subjective legal responsibility as a personal quality. The need of its development in order to increase the activity efficiency according to the prevention of illegal behavior of juvenile probationers is proved. The description of the developed technique of subjective legal responsibility progress is given. The results of its approbation are provided in a pilot study with participation of juvenile probationers in Tyumen and other towns of the south of the Tyumen region (120 people). The technique is based on the idea of using a constructive component of suspended sentence potential. Personal experience of negative consequences of crime commission by juvenile probationers is taken into consideration. The need to follow law standards in the course of serving a trial period of suspended sentence comes into account. Stages when a consecutive change of vectors in orientation of subjective legal responsibility from actual to retrospective and from the retrospective to perspective are characterized. The conclusion is made that the technique implementation in preventive activity according to juvenile probationers promotes decrease in level of illegal behavior among them.
