A Report on the Impacts of the August 1977 Changes in the Children's Code Concerning the Handling of Children's Matters in Anchorage.
Although geographically specific, this report is intended to serve as an educational resource for community, agency, and legislative personnel regarding the impacts created by revised legislation about children and the approaches used to improve the quality of justice for young people and their families. It is based on changes made in the juvenile delinquency dispositional statute in Alaska. The areas which were impacted by these changes, i.e., the juvenile justice system, the social services system, and miscellaneous children's legislation, are presented in a statute-by-statute format, with a statement of the law followed by an examination of change, legislative intent, extent of and problems with implementation, and general impact analysis of the subsequent changes. The appendices contain statistics on juvenile delinquents, legislative materials, forms used by social services workers, and project report data. (Author/HLM)
