Front End Juvenile Justice Reform Initiative

CHSR worked with the Albany City Police Department to examine the impact of a front end juvenile justice reform initiative on youth placement and detention, systems change, and information sharing.  The project was funded by the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS).

Evaluation & Research

CHSR developed a logic model that outlined the goals, strategies, and outcomes of the initiative. Using primary and secondary data, we conducted a pre-post analysis to assess the effect of the JJMRT on juvenile justice system involvement.
