The Washington State Institute for Public Policy has done it again, this time with a newly-posted report documenting six juvenile programs identified as evidence-based. Evidence-Based Juvenile Offender Programs: Program Description, Quality Assurance, and Cost includes brief program descriptions, cost per participant, plus citations to the research leading to the evidence-based designation.
Separately, a hat tip to Doug Berman at Sentencing Law and Policy, who further credits the Sex Crimes blog, for release of a new report from Human Rights Watch USA reviewing sex offender policies and their impact on public safety, the offenders, and their families.
