from Director Steve McComb
Juvenile Justice still has work to do in ensuring that every youth is being properly assessed, whether for substance abuse needs, mental health condition, or risk of re-offending. We also need to do better at following through on our mission to build youth competencies, such as job skills, and to involve families at all stages. Once we can say we’ve done these things, then we will be able to say with complete confidence that, yes, Alaska does have the best juvenile justice system in the country.
