A Successful Juvenile Justice and Fiscal Policy Event

imageOur forum on juvenile justice and fiscal policy was an overwhelming success, thanks to a packed house of community members and our partners at the Morrison Institute for Public Policy at Arizona State University. The energy in the room showed an intense interest in this issue and a desire to work together to continue to keep youth out of the criminal justice system, as trends show an overall reduction in juvenile crime statewide.

We thank our attendees and participants for contributing to a robust and meaningful discussion:image

Moderator: Hon. Pat Escher

Panelists: Hon. Liz Archuleta, Coconino Co. Supervisor

Hon. Colleen McNally, Presiding Juvenile Court Judge, Maricopa County

Tim Hardy, Director, Yuma Co. Juvenile Justice Center

Dona Marie Markley, Asst. Director, Arizona Dept. of Juvenile Corrections

For those unable to attend Thursday’s forum, a copy of the new Morrison Institute report, Juvenile Justice in Arizona: The Fiscal Foundations of Effective Policy is available online.
