New Approach to Juvenile Offenders
We recently came across an article from Chattanooga, TN, which stated that juvenile arrest have dropped 60% in the past five years. According to the article, the decline is the result of a shift in juvenile justice away from punitive, arrest-focused work and toward ways of dealing with juvenile offenders “that don’t automatically end with minors in handcuffs.
The article is a great example of what can happen when trained, experienced professionals are involved early in a juvenile issue, and look for ways to avoid an arrest. Juvenile arrests and detention have negative consequences that can last far beyond the initial issue. Depending on the circumstance a juvenile could face delays in getting a high school degree, impacts to college acceptance, or even issues with employment.
