DMC Action Network e-News - January 2010
Published Jan 12, 2010, DMC Action Network
The DMC Action Network had much to celebrate at the end of 2009. Last month, the MacArthur Foundation's Fourth Annual National Working Conference in Washington, DC highlighted successes in DMC reduction in sites throughout the country. In the past year, jurisdictions have expanded their capacity for data collection, reduced their use of secure detention and out-of-home placement, and improved the cultural competence of services in the juvenile justice system.
