Breaking the Rules: Rethinking Condition Setting and Enforcement in Juvenile Probation
Hosted by The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center
Improving community safety and outcomes for youth in the juvenile justice system requires rethinking probation condition setting and enforcement. Many juvenile probation agencies and juvenile courts are oriented around monitoring youth’s compliance with a long list of probation conditions. These conditions can set up youth for failure, push youth deeper into the system, and perpetuate system inequities rather than contribute to youth’s success and community safety. Over the past year, The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center, supported by Arnold Ventures, embarked on a project to advance a more effective, equitable approach to juvenile probation condition setting and enforcement, including addressing the outsized role that probation conditions and technical violations play in driving out-of-home placements. During this webinar, panelists will discuss our recently published Breaking the Rules: Rethinking Condition Setting and Enforcement in Juvenile Probation digital toolkit and on-the-ground approaches they have implemented in their locales to transform their approaches to probation condition setting and enforcement.
