Youth Group Offers Recommendations to DJJ

February 6th, 2008 by flanews

A Florida Group focused on helping kids wants to make sure the Department of Juvenile Justice is able to follow through with its recommendations. Tuesday the department released its Blue Print Commission report. The report offers 52 recommendations to change the states juvenile justice system. The Network of Youth and Family Services held a press conference to offer its suggestions on how to make the recommendations a reality. The Commission outlined a five point action plan and pointed out the states short comings.

We dont invest in early childhood education, we dont invest enough in things like kid care, we dont invest in after school programs, and so those investments arent made and problems develop and as a state were going to spend hundreds of millions of dollars even billions of dollars throughout the state budget to address problems that could have been prevented, Roy Miller, President Childrens Campaign.

Eighty five percent of the states youth services come from the private sector not the state.
