on juvenile justice in Cook County
The Adler School Institute on Public Safety and Social Justice (IPSSJ) and its partner organizations with the Cook County Juvenile Justice Task Force recently published a concept paper outlining community-based, trauma-informed, restorative solutions to youth crime and conflict in Cook County, Illinois.
In this Reclaiming Futures blog post, writer David Backes calls attention to report findings "that the majority of juvenile justice dollars are spent in only a few zip codes. By using community approaches to juvenile justice, the Adler School argues that the county could get a much higher return on investment, along with lowering the risk currently posed by teen crime."
He also calls the report "worth an in-depth read."
