Governor Plans to Change Juvenille Justice System

Venice Sloan with Community Corrections came before the board. She talked to Commissioners about Governor Sam Brownback wanting to move the handling of juvenile delinquents to the new Social Rehabilitation Services instead of with Juvenile Justice Authority. Ms. Sloan stated that JJA is opposing this move because this has been tried before and did not work. Sheriff Rich Vernon was also present during this discussion and stated that he is in support of JJA continuing to handle juvenile delinquents in the State of Kansas. Ms. Sloan will be sending a letter for Commissioners to review and sign that will be sent to the State in opposition of this change in service provider for juvenile delinquents.
