Never Too Early, Never Too Late ? To Prevent Youth Crime & Violence

Never Too Early, Never Too Late ? To Prevent Youth Crime & Violence

The Little Hoover Commission on California State Government Organization and Economy, an independent, bipartisan body created in 1962 to promote efficiency and effectiveness in state programs, has released the complete version of Never Too Early, Never Too Late — To Prevent Youth Crime & Violence (112 pages, PDF), its comprehensive report on youth crime prevention efforts in California. The report contains two essential conclusions: one, that violence and crime among young people can be prevented; and two, that in order to do so the state must alter how it supports local communities in this endeavor. Loaded with sidebars, charts and graphs, and specific recommendations, the report is a must read for anyone concerned about our children's — and our nation's — future.
