This is the June 22, 2017 hearing titled "Juvenile Justice Reform in the Modern Era" held before the House Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations. From the opening statement of Bob Goodlatte: "Today we recognize that societies must aim for juvenile justice systems that protect public safety, hold justice involved youth appropriately accountable, and provide treatment and rehabilitative services tailored to the needs of youth and their families. [...] Due to the fact that nearly all juveniles in the criminal justice system are State level offenders, federalism plays an important role in improving juvenile justice. It has allowed States to try out various initiatives and see what is effective and what is not. Indeed, I am glad to see States exploring ways to reduce recidivism and improve youth outcomes by using evidence-based and evidenced-informed programs, practices, and policies." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Alan Hanson, Joe Vignati, Devon McDonald, Jim SaintGermain, and Liz Ryan.
