Report says Cheltenham is overcrowded

By Washington Post editors

Maryland's juvenile justice watchdog says the Cheltenham Youth Facility was the most overcrowded of Maryland's largest secure detention centers between April and July.

The Juvenile Justice Monitoring Unit says that while the Department of Juvenile Services has successfully taken steps to reduce the population at its three most crowded facilities, Cheltenham still was over its capacity every day of the second quarter period of the year.

The Department of Juvenile Services says that while some department facilities have had recent population increases, none had chronic and severe overcrowding and no negative effects have resulted from the overpopulation.
