In October, CJJR convened representatives from the 12 Arizona counties currently implementing the Crossover Youth Practice Model. Participating in the historic, day-long Phoenix event were leaders from the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) and the Department of Child Safety (DCS), as well as judges, attorneys, and various other partners from all over the state.
Kicked off by welcoming remarks from AOC Juvenile Justice Services Division Director Joe Kelroy and DCS Director Greg McKay, the meeting featured panel presentations on innovative court-based approaches and coordinated case management, as well as a discussion on the recently released report by the Arizona Supreme Court’s Task Force on crossover youth data and information sharing. In 2018, AOC and DCS leaders in Arizona plan to expand CYPM implementation to all 15 counties in the state.
