Learn how one innovative Arizona County addressed the changing landscape of juvenile detention by reducing the money spent detaining youth by 95% the first year and building a dynamic drop-in teen center available to all local high school aged kids.  Facing the realization that the County’s Juvenile Detention Center was costing over $1 million dollars to run annually and only served an average of 1.7 juveniles per day, Presiding Judge Michael Latham introduced his vision for incorporating an engaging community-focused teen center with a venue to meet the County’s juvenile detention needs. The vision included transforming the aged detention center into a hip loft-inspired venue offering a wide range of activities, technology and amenities open to local area youth – paired with a respite center and intake area to ensure the needs of the County’s juvenile population are available when needed.

The webinar shares how the journey that began with closing the local detention center resulted in maximized efficiencies, the creation of safe-haven/respite options for juveniles, and the implementation of a “pro-active engagement” teen center model.  The webinar would be ideal for anyone working with or providing funding to juvenile justice programs.
