Webinar To Explore Responses to Status Offenses

November 17, 2014

National Association of Counties LogoOn November 20, 2014, from 2 to 3:15 p.m. ET, the National Association of Counties will present the Webinar "The Right Responses to Status Offenses: Best Practices for Counties.” Presenters will discuss the causes of status offenses—such as truancy, running away, or curfew violations—and the impact that an arrest for these acts has on youth, families, and counties. The Webinar will highlight how Clark County, WA, and Maricopa County, AZ, are successfully responding to status offenses through community-based treatments instead of court involvement.
