From The Sentencing Project:

We are pleased to announce the launch of our juvenile justice page, where policymakers, practitioners, researchers, advocates, and the media can visit to obtain data and analysis on juvenile justice matters. The juvenile justice system is undergoing important reforms, including diverting more youth from secure confinement, adopting evidence-based programming, and recording information about youth in the system with greater accuracy than in earlier periods. Still, with nearly 100,000 youth in detention on any given day, and nearly 2,000 young people sentenced to juvenile life without parole sentences, an urgent need for a more rational approach to juvenile delinquency remains.
