KIDS COUNT – NYS

Shifting Trends in NYS Juvenile Justice

The recently released Annie E. Casey Foundation KIDS COUNT data snapshot on youth incarceration finds that the rate of young people locked up because of trouble with the law dropped more than 40 percent over a 15-year period, with no decrease in public safety. A similar trend was observed in New York state. View the below Shifting Trends in NYS Juvenile Justice Video to learn about changes in the NYS juvenile justice system.
