That’s according to a report recently released that was conducted in October 2018. Now, the state is looking to hire someone to find out why more racial and ethnic kids are entering the juvenile justice system.

The state says a recent study looked at youth arrests and referrals to the courts, and it found a lack of law enforcement familiarity with training to reduce implicit biases. It also found more stakeholders, like faith-based organizations and schools, need to be involved to address these disparities.
