Youth in Transition: From Incarceration to Reintegration. A National Survey of State Juvenile Correctional Services.
Eastern Kentucky Univ., Richmond. Dept. of Correctional Services.
A national phone survey was conducted by the Eastern Kentucky University Training Resource Center to determine how states were addressing the problems associated with the transition of youth from correctional facilities to their home communities. The survey, which was conducted during March-May 1987, asked chief state juvenile correctional officials to respond to 26 questions. The questions focused on the organization of juvenile correctional services, policies and procedures related to transition, and the identification of the best transitional programs in each state. This report presents a summary of selected data from the information gathered regarding the organization of juvenile correctional services and existing policies and procedures related to transition. Profiles of all of the states and the District of Columbia systems follow the summary of selected data. Four tables and four references are included. (NLA)
