Limiting juvenile probation terms is more efficient, equitable, and reduces harm

An Urban Institute report on juvenile probation synthesizes existing research and proposes restructuring probation to shorten terms for youth. Authors cite three central reasons for limiting probation lengths, including minimizing harm to youth by reducing justice system involvement, deploying both justice system and community-based resources more efficiently, and promoting racial equity by improving access to supports and services for youth of color. #juvenilejustice #racialequity
