Final Report to Governor & General Assembly due Dec. 1, 2020 (Chapter 253, Acts of 2019).
In June 2019, the Juvenile Justice Reform Council was authorized (Chapter 253, Acts of 2019).
First, the Council is to establish an advisory stakeholder group. With that group, the Council will conduct roundtable discussion forums all over the State, maximizing public participation. Using data, the Council is to develop a statewide policy framework of strategies that increase public safety and reduce recidivism of young offenders. To treat juveniles who come in contact with the criminal and juvenile justice systems, best practices will be researched by the Council. Ways to limit contact of juveniles with the criminal and juvenile justice systems or otherwise mitigate the risk factors that lead to such contact are to be identified and recommended by the Council.
In pursuit of its goals, the Council may request technical assistance from the Abell Foundation, the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Council of State Governments, the Vera Institute of Justice, or any similar organization.
Authorization for the Council ends June 30, 2021.
