New Report Makes Case for Reducing Juvenile Incarceration

October 5, 2011

On October 4th, the Annie E. Casey Foundation released "No Place for Kids: The Case for Reducing Juvenile Incarceration." The report makes the case for states that have substantially reduced their juvenile correctional facility populations in recent years and details how these states have seen no resulting increase in juvenile crime or violence. The report also highlights successful reform efforts from several states and recommends ways that states can reduce juvenile incarceration rates and redesign their juvenile correction systems to better serve young people and the public.

This report is part of the Casey Foundation's efforts to catalyze a more coordinated national movement to reform juvenile corrections that results in less crime and more successful futures for America's young people.
