One Year Later: A Review of the Texas Youth Commission / Texas Juvenile Probation Commission Merger

Since 2005, juvenile crime has plummeted and Texas has roughly one third of the juveniles in lockup as it did then. To take full advantage of the cost savings available from downsized facilities, legislators merged the Texas Youth Commission and the Texas Juvenile Probation Commission. The merger created the Texas Juvenile Justice Department with the goals of shrinking government and to continue carrying out the policies which led to the reduction of youth crime. Our panelists will evaluate the success of the merger, define the ongoing goals for the merger, and identify the next steps for continuing to reduce crime and costs.
