Juvenile Delinquency

This petition had 56 supporters

Juvenile delinquency is a problem that is prevalent in Los Angeles. It is an issue that has been around for centuries but it seems to always be lingering in our society. Fortunately, juvenile delinquency has been decreasing over the years but still remains an issue in society that could be abolished with the help of implementations of policies. The Los Angeles County spends more than $233,000 a year per youth to hold them in detention centers (Los Angeles Times 2016). Congress has a responsibility to appropriate and rearrange funding for the California Department of Correction and Rehabilitation (CDCR) so that Diversion Programs like Adults in the making (AIM) and Aggression Replacement training (ART) receive more funding thus being able to expand their services to a larger range of at risk juveniles. Doing so will save the American taxpayer by increasing the use of early interventions in aims to prevent delinquents from re-offending or offending in the first place.
