Annotation: The Indiana Juvenile Law Committee was mandated statutorily to study issues of concern related to the juvenile laws and to recommend improvements.
Abstract: The number of violent juvenile crimes has risen in the State over the past few years, at the same time that there have been problems providing adequate services to Indiana juveniles through State juvenile justice programs, education programs, social programs, and welfare programs. This report summarizes testimony heard by the Committee during the four meetings it held in 1992. As a result of this testimony, the Committee recommended that appropriate and concerned agencies take steps to eliminate duplication of services to the juvenile, that provisions in the Indiana Code that are inconsistent in the treatment of juveniles be reviewed, that the State develop the capacity to serve juveniles in Indiana rather than sending them out of State, and that the State develop comprehensive services for juveniles and their families including mental health service.
