The National Conference of State Legislatures has released “Trends in Juvenile Justice State Legislation: 2001–2011,” which examines state legislative activity over the past decade on a number of juvenile justice issues, including prevention and intervention, disproportionate minority contact, reentry/aftercare, and corrections reform. According to the report, during this period, legislatures have tended to realign fiscal resources from state institutions toward more effective community-based services.
