This resource booklet offers communities alternatives to juvenile detention and correctional facilities. The range of possibilities to be considered in lieu of incarceration is made available to planners, advocates, and decision-makers. The use of detention, correctional facilities and alternatives is a function of the social, political and economic dynamics of each jurisdiction, and, therefore, blanket solutions are not possible. The objectives of this booklet are to: (1) stimulate communities into developing and utilizing alternative options, (2) stimulate communities to think more creatively about services that already exist, (3) and to demonstrate that developing community alternatives need not involve great expenditures of funds. The material is organized into non-residential, short-term residential, and residential alternatives. (PJC)
