Do Public Health Agencies Hold the Key to Working with At-Risk Youth in California?

Amid a shrinking juvenile justice system, a new California bill is part of a statewide debate about how the state should serve young people at greatest risk of involvement with the criminal justice system.

Building on nascent efforts in Los Angeles County, Senate Bill (SB) 433 would create a handful of county Offices of Youth Development and Diversion (YDD) across the state as part of a proposed three-year, $10 million pilot project. These offices would be responsible for creating a coordinated countywide system of pre-arrest juvenile diversion and youth development programs from largely community-based providers and would be managed by public health departments instead of county-run probation departments.
