HOME IS WHERE I BELONG: Juvenile Justice Shifts Back to the Community

10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

State leaders are debating proposals to close several near-empty juvenile facilities and revamp a system that has long invested only modest resources in community-based alternatives. Meanwhile, New York City is deploying family supports and services designed to keep more young people from being locked up, send others home faster, and still ensure public safety. Could New York have a juvenile justice system that depends less on incarceration and detention--and more on communities and families? What works, and what doesn't? And will there be funding to achieve meaningful change?A conversation with:Gladys Carrión, Commissioner, New York State Office of Children & Family ServicesNeil Hernandez, Commissioner, New York City Department of Juvenile JusticePatricia Brennan, Deputy Commissioner for Juvenile Operations, New York City Department of ProbationMishi Faruqee, Juvenile Justice Project Director, The Correctional Association of New YorkJeremy C.
