Governor’s Proposal to Complete Juvenile Justice Realignment

22-Mar-2012
The Legislative Analyst's Office has released its hearing handout, "Governor's Proposal to Complete Juvenile Justice Realignment," which was presented to the Senate Budget Subcommittee No. 5 on Corrections, Public Safety and the Judiciary, finds the Governor's proposal to "fully realign juvenile justice to counties" could potentially be more "efficient and effective," says "counties are better positioned to reduce the likelihood of recidivism by providing a continuity of supervision and services between time spent in a facility and in the community."
