OVERVIEW | JUVENILE JUSTICE

Preventing and addressing juvenile crime and delinquency remain perennial issues in state legislatures. NCSL tracks state actions that work to prevent delinquency; provide treatment to meet the alcohol, drug and mental health needs of young people; address the confidentiality of juvenile records; and otherwise address how young people are distinguished from adult offenders. NCSL has resources tracking how states are addressing a U.S. Supreme Court ruling on juvenile life without parole sentences, including retroactive application.
