Juvenile Justice in South Dakota: Where Are We? Where Are We Going?
This training session is a part of our 2022 Community Response to Child Abuse Conference. Purchase of this content opens access to all 19 sessions and corresponding continuing education credits.
This presentation will highlight South Dakota’s Juvenile Justice process and the successes and challenges that still exist. The state has increased the amount of youth being diverted from the formal court process and decreased the amount of youth admitted into detention. There is still a need for increased mental health services for youth at every stage in the juvenile justice system.
