Innovative Information on Juvenile Residential Facilities (FS 200011) September 2000
2 page(s)
Moone, J.
Describes the first Juvenile Residential Facility Census (JRFC), a new effort designed to collect information about the facilities in which juvenile offenders are held. JRFC, which will be conducted in October 2000, will gather information on the health care, education, substance abuse treatment, and mental health treatment provided to youth in these facilities. JRFC will indicate the use of screenings or tests conducted to determine counseling, education, health, or substance abuse needs and will examine prominent issues about conditions of confinement, including the restraint of youth and improper absences from the facility.
