Additional Information:
Research shows youth confined in adult jails and lockups are more likely to come back into contact with the system and that, while confined, are at pronounced high risks for suffering assault and committing suicide.

This webinar will explain how H.R. 6964 extends the jail removal and sight and sound core requirements to keep youth awaiting trial in criminal court out of adult jails and lockups and to ensure sight and sound separation in the limited circumstances where they are held in adult facilities.
