Division for Youth

Counseling Services (Follow-Up Review)

Youths are sent by courts to the Division for Youth to receive counseling until they are considered fit to return to the community. In our prior audit report 93-S-28, we found that the youths' counseling needs often were not identified, and even when the needs were identified, the needed counseling often was not provided. Moreover, most of the youths released from Division care were soon rearrested. We concluded that Division counseling practices were not successful. In our follow-up review, we found that some of our prior audit recommendations have been implemented; however, additional action is needed if the recommendations are to be fully implemented.
