LA County Board of Supes Presses Probation Dept. to Spend Juvenile Justice Dollars
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved a motion yesterday that would speed funds to community-based organizations under California’s Juvenile Justice Crime Prevention Act (JJCPA). As The Imprint of Social Change reported last week, Los Angeles County’s Probation Department has been holding back nearly $22 million in funds earmarked for prevention programs aimed at keeping youth out of the juvenile justice system.
