Description

The Maryland Department of Juvenile Services (DJS), under request of the State Legislature and in partnership with the University of Maryland, is conducting a comprehensive examination of juvenile detention in DJS-operated facilities. A statewide study, planned for completion in June 2013, will investigate county-level differences in the extent to which detention decisions are justified using an objective risk assessment, as well as the degree to which detention and suitable alternatives are being utilized. The current study focused on the use of secure detention for youth in Prince George’s County.
