The Lens Honored for Reporting on Mediation of Juvenile Inmates Across State Facilities

April 7, 2012 | by Project NOLA

NCCD PASS Award winner in the news:

The Lens criminal justice reporter Matt Davis received a 2011 Prevention for a Safer Society Award for his story Overmedicating Young Inmates Called Chemical Restraint, which examined a statewide practice of dosing youth inmates with potent antipsychotic drugs even when they had not been diagnosed with conditions requiring medication.

NCCD also honored Lens news editor Jed Horne with the same award for editing the piece.
