Reducing Youth Incarceration

The National Council on Crime & Delinquency has issued reports on the youth deincarceration trend over the last ten years.  Indiana has certainly seen evidence of this trend with the expanding Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative and the closing of the South Bend and Northeastern Indiana Department of Correction, Division of Youth Services facilities.

There will be a total of nine articles.  Here are the first ones by Antoinette Davis, Angela Irvine, and Jason Ziedenberg:
