Join In on an Interactive Discussion on Juvenile Justice and Fiscal Policy

| January 18, 2016

In the past several years, juvenile crime rates in Arizona have dropped, thanks in part to community-based programs offered in local jurisdictions. New state policies, however, could have a dramatic impact on how these services are offered by requiring counties to pay for incarcerating youth in state juvenile correctional facilities.canstockphoto26699950.jpg
