***Location Change: Join CAA for an Interactive Discussion on Juvenile Justice and Fiscal Policy***

| January 24, 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.

Join Children’s Action Alliance and Arizona State University’s Morrison Institute for Public Policy for the release of a new report titled Juvenile Justice in Arizona: The Fiscal Foundations of Effective Policy, as well as an interactive discussion on how Arizona can improve public safety outcomes involving youth.

Due to overwhelming interest, the location has changed to accommodate more attendees. 

  • When:  Thursday, January 28, 2016
  • Time: 8:30 am – 10:00 am
  • Where: Burton Barr Library, Pulliam Auditorium (NEW LOCATION)
    • 1221 N. Central Avenue, Phoenix (enter through north ramp)

The panel will feature the following experts:

Moderator:  Hon. Patricia Escher, Retired, Presiding Juvenile Court Judge, Pima County

Hon. Colleen McNally, Presiding Juvenile Court Judge, Maricopa County

Tim Hardy, Director, Yuma County Juvenile Justice Center

The Report’s Author and Speaker: Bill Hart, ASU Morrison Institute for Public Policy
