Unlocked: Juvenile probation reformed

California counties could learn from other states when it comes to protocol for youth on probation. Wayne County, Michigan, has elements that make the probation period a little less like punishment, and a little more like support. Case managers and counselors integrate personal relationships into the routine check-ins and regulations required for youth on probation. “While you certainly need compliance and accountability in any system, it can’t be the system. Otherwise it just perpetuates itself rather than to benefit children.” Catch this segment, part two of a series on juvenile incarceration, on Youth Radio.
