Colorado Launches Comprehensive Review of Juvenile Justice System

DENVER — Monday, May 14, 2018 — Gov. John Hickenlooper today announced a comprehensive review of Colorado’s juvenile justice system. The Governor was joined by Sen. Bob Gardner (R), Rep. Pete Lee (D), and Justice Brian Boatright of the Colorado Supreme Court in the effort to ensure that youth who find themselves in corrections at an early age can have a second chance to build successful futures. The task force furthers our efforts to keep youth out of the criminal justice system, bolster Two-Generation approaches, and get the best outcomes for Colorado youth.
