When Systems Collaborate: How Three Jurisdictions Improved their Handling of Dual-Status Cases

Publication year: 2015  |  Cataloged on: Mar 16, 2016

When Systems Collaborate (19 pages) provides case studies of three jurisdictions trying to coordinate information and services to youth with dual-status in both the juvenile justice and child welfare systems. The jurisdictions were selected based on a 50-state survey of efforts to coordinate data and services to dual status youth and selects examples that provide starting places for developing solutions on a complex reform issue. The first example focuses on delinquency referral intake and diversion, the second example focuses on community supervision or probation and the final case study explores efforts in a state to keep both child welfare and juvenile corrections involved in facilitating reentry and aftercare for dual-status youth.
