We revisit the state’s plan to build a $100 million detention center for youth tried as adults. The Governor and some state officials argue that the facility is the only way to ensure that the most violent youth offenders are separated both from the population of adult inmates, and from other youth who are not charged with such serious crimes. Advocates argue that the money should be diverted to crime prevention and community building projects, and that there are other ways to keep the three groups separate.
Our guests are:
Kristen Mahoney, Director of the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention
