The National Council on Crime & Delinquency has released the first five reports in an eight-part series developed from a nationwide study on youth deincarceration. Despite a 41% drop in the rate of youth in confinement between 2001 and 2011, youth of color continue to be held in formal supervision and state facilities at much higher rates than white youth. The reports will summarize stakeholder views on reducing youth incarceration and identify ways to budget for reform. Subsequent reports to be released this month will focus on supervision, placement oversight, transfer to adult court, family involvement, and more. To download the reports, click here.
