Evident Change has published its evaluation report of the LA Model. The model was developed after Los Angeles County leadership determined that a rehabilitative, home-like environment would better serve youth who are justice system-involved than traditional correctional institutions.

Webinar: Pathways Girls Take to and Through the Juvenile Justice System

| NCCD

In this webinar, Dr. Erin Espinosa discusses her latest research on pathways to the juvenile justice system and how gender, mental health system involvement, and trauma affect those pathways.

NCCD conducted a survey to assess system-level responses to the COVID-19 pandemic by justice and child welfare agencies. The survey, open for eight weeks, was answered by 185 respondents from 20 states and Australia. Responses represented the views of staff from juvenile and adult probation and parole departments, juvenile and adult residential detention facilities (including jails and prisons at the adult level), and child welfare agencies.

Respondents were asked about their agencies’ responses to the pandemic, including safety measures taken to protect staff and clients, problems encountered and remedies employed, and needed resources. A summary of the results are presented here. Additional survey results can be found here.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a massive impact on the juvenile and adult justice systems. Many prisons, jails, and detention facilities are taking steps to alleviate the spread of the virus by releasing individuals early. Consequently, community corrections agencies are bracing for the inevitable increase in their populations and the new challenges it will bring.
