On Thursday, September 25, 2014, the National Association of Counties (NACo) will be hosting a webinar, Using Juvenile Justice Receiving Centers to Improve Safety & Outcomes, from 2:00 pm until 3:15 pm EDT.
“Receiving Centers” for juveniles who are arrested or picked up by law enforcement officers for status or misdemeanor offenses offer a number of benefits to counties. These centers allow officers to drop off youth and quickly return to their duties in the community, provide a secure environment for juveniles and can identify underlying causes of delinquent or problem behavior. Join NACo to learn about receiving centers in Calcasieu Parish, La., and Tulsa County, Okla.
