Group: State of Mississippi Judiciary

URL: http://courts.ms.gov/reports/ChildrensJusticedoc.pdf

Description

The Commission recommends a comprehensive review of the judicial process in child protection cases in youth court to evaluate the sufficiency of the current youth court structure in Mississippi; the sufficiency of its current funding provided primarily by the county governments; and the need for uniform state level funding and state level accountability of youth courts statewide. The review of Mississippi’s current judicial youth court structure and our allocation of judicial assets should include a review of models utilized successfully in other states and the model youth court programs in Mississippi that have proven more effective in achieving permanency and positive results for children and their families.
