Juveniles ages 12 and older at risk of placement into secure detention.
Reduce the number of juveniles held in secure detention, i.e. county jails or municipal lock-ups.
Illinois has embraced efforts to create alternatives to secure detention of juveniles. Through a partnership with the Annie E. Casey Foundation, Illinois Courts, Youth Network Council and DHS, a number of counties have been granted funds to develop community-based alternatives to detention. The program supports technical assistance activities to counties attempting to develop, implement and/or sustain detention alternatives.
