Public Safety Gains Made Among DC Youth Offenders

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) –DC Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services (DYRS) Director Neil A. Stanley released data today that demonstrates public safety gains have been made among youth in the agency’s care in the first half of 2013. Fewer DYRS-connected youth are being re-arrested, and fewer are being reconvicted. DYRS is DC’s juvenile justice agency responsible for those court-involved youth who are most in need of intense supervision and treatment services.
