#88 Transforming Juvenile Probation


When juveniles face criminal charges, most end up on probation. This should put their young lives on track. But too often, it’s just another set of rules, and kids fall into deeper trouble. Can we transform probation for juveniles, so more kids don’t become adult offenders? Guest Stephen Bishop runs the effort to transform juvenile probation in the U.S., for the Annie E Casey Foundation. Bishop discusses how to make probation both more rare, and more successful.
