Implementing Comprehensive Juvenile Justice Improvement in Kentucky
(NCJ 251354) October 2017
Report, 7 page(s)
The Crime and Justice Institute (CJI)
Kentucky has experienced early positive results following passage of the Senate Bill 200 (SB 200), a sweeping juvenile justice improvement bill, including reductions in the number of commitments to state custody; increased access to diversion, a process that holds youth accountable without going through the formal court system; and reduced recidivism rates. This report examines the early outcomes after the bill's implementation.
