An increase in violence inside Louisiana’s juvenile prisons in recent years is just one of the findings in a state legislative audit.

“What we did is we did an average number of fights per youth so you could compare years no matter how many kids were actually housed in the facilities,” says Kristen Jacobs with the Legislative Auditor’s Office.

The Office of Juvenile Justice oversees three facilities in the state, including the Bridge City Center for Youth, where FOX 8 has reported multiple arrests of juveniles in recent weeks due to violent incidents.
