No Place for Kids: The Case for Reducing Juvenile Incarceration

The Annie E. Casey Foundation releases a report that examines the detrimental impact of America's over-reliance on incarceration of youth.

On October 4th, the Annie E. Casey Foundation released No Place for Kids:  The Case for Reducing Juvenile Incarceration, which examines the detrimental impact of America's over-reliance on incarceration of youth in a thorough, in-depth analysis of its effects on youth and public safety.

 

Combining research, data and testimony, the analysis shows that America's reliance on incarcerating young offenders has not only failed to combat youth crime but also that reducing these rates and closing facilities does not increase juvenile crime rates.
