Meeting examines minority youths’ contact with juvenile justice system

By From page A3 | November 19, 2013

All are invited to attend a training Tuesday evening in Woodland as part of local efforts to reduce disproportionate detention and contact with the juvenile justice system for youths of color. In Yolo County, the most disproportionate representation is among Latino youths.

The training session, sponsored by the Yolo County Juvenile Probation Department, will run from 6 to 8 p.m. at CommuniCare Health Center, 804 Court St.

Community members and parents of children in custody will discuss what drives disproportionate detention across the country, use data to identify Yolo County’s challenges and share proven approaches to reduce youth detention and contact with the juvenile justice system.
