Annotation: Because juvenile crime is on the rise in New York, a Juvenile Justice Commission was established to hold roundtable discussions and public hearings on juvenile crime across the State.
Abstract: Roundtables and public hearings focused on public safety, parental accountability, school safety, family participation in youth programs, the transfer of juveniles to adult court, boot camps, alternative sentencing, first-time and minor juvenile offenders, and conflict resolution. Juvenile justice recommendations were formulated by the New York Attorney General that encompass legislative and program initiatives and alternatives to sentencing. The recommendations specifically include: fingerprint and photograph all juvenile felons, increase prison sentences for juvenile felons, share family court information with schools and appropriate agencies, forfeit youthful offender status after a second felony conviction, authorize family court search and arrest warrants, hold parents accountable in family court, establish gun-free school zones, include more family participation in youth programs, use boot camps and alternative sentences for first-time and minor juvenile offenders, implement effective crime prevention programs, and formulate a comprehensive and coordinated community-based plan to implement prevention and enforcement programs. Supplemental information on the summit is appended.
