Brief Explores Supervision Strategies for Justice-Involved Youth

June 4, 2014

Supervision  Strategies for Justice-Involved YouthThe National Council on Crime and Delinquency (NCCD) has released “Supervision Strategies for Justice-Involved Youth.” This policy brief describes strategies to improve supervision of low- and moderate-risk youth on probation, parole, or under community supervision to keep them out of the juvenile justice system. Key strategies explored include reducing supervision of youth who do not need it, avoiding unnecessary revocations, and engaging youth with families and service providers.

This brief is part of a series based on NCCD’s national study on youth deincarceration.
