Juvenile Justice Print
ENSURE the Department of Juvenile Justice provides front-end prevention programs with proven track records and “best practice” results. PRESERVE funding for Juvenile Assessment Centers (JACs) in areas with high need and utilization, and preserve funding for effective girls’ programs. PRESERVE CINS/FINS funding.

MODIFY current zero tolerance policies to provide for school suspensions and evidence-based diversion in lieu of mandatory expulsions for youth exhibiting non-threatening behavior.

SUPPORT efforts to seal and expunge juvenile records, thereby removing barriers to continuing education and employment.
