**Location Change** Join Us for an Interactive Discussion on Juvenile Justice and Effective Fiscal Policy

In the past several years, juvenile crime rates in Arizona have dropped, thanks in part to community-based prevention and diversion programs offered in local jurisdictions. New state policies, however, could have a dramatic impact on how these services are offered by requiring counties to pay for incarcerating youth in state juvenile correctional facilities.

Join Children’s Action Alliance and Arizona State University’s Morrison Institute for Public Policy for the release of a new report titled Juvenile Justice in Arizona: The Fiscal Foundations of Effective Policy, as well as an interactive discussion on how Arizona can improve public safety outcomes involving youth.
