"Defeating Delinquency: Slowing the Flow into Texas' Juvenile Justice System" Room 408

Texas has about a third of the juveniles in state lockups as it had in 2005 while juvenile crime has plummeted over this period. Yet, many challenges remain, which range from the front-end of the system where more than 600,000 out-of-school suspensions every year contribute to high drop-out and delinquency rates to the back end of the system where security and programming remain uneven in state institutions. The panelists will provide insights on steps that can be taken in the next session to continue Texas’ progress in right-sizing its juvenile justice system.
