KFVS: So. IL counties receive Juvenile Justice Council Planning Grant
UNION COUNTY, IL (KFVS) –
A new program is helping change the way six southern Illinois counties help juveniles with discipline problems by addressing the issue before they become regulars in the court system.
The program, called Redeploy, will give counties the option of providing counselors to troubled teens and their families before ultimately sending a teen to a juvenile justice.
Union County State’s Attorney Tyler Edmonds said the program has the ability to make a big difference in southern Illinois.
