Fenty Initiates New Juvenile Tracking Program
The District is compiling a list of 60 of the most serious juvenile offenders in detention and will share information on their backgrounds with police and some community groups before allowing the youths to return home, especially to high-crime neighborhoods, writes Washington Post reporter Robert Pierre.
In a statement released by his office yesterday, Fenty said, "Working with local organizations and advocates that serve District youth, and with their families, DYRS has designed an initiative to provide and coordinate a wide range of key services needed by youth in trouble and share information about youth being returned to the community. This will allow the District to rehabilitate our at-risk youth and build stronger, safer communities."
