Juvenile Justice in New York State

The New York State Juvenile Justice Advisory Group (JJAG)—the primary funder of juvenile justice programs and services in New York State—asked Bennett Midland to generate recommendations to help direct its investment decisions. We conducted a close examination of programs and strategies concerning diversion programs for arrested youth—both in New York State and nationally. Our work included a comprehensive review of literature in the area, interviews with experts around the United States, and consultation with a diverse array of juvenile justice stakeholders in New York. At the conclusion of the engagement, Bennett Midland presented a concrete plan to the JJAG, comprised of detailed recommendations for investment and action.
