This week, Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed an executive order creating the Task Force on Juvenile Justice Reform, chaired by Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist. It will be tasked with analyzing the state’s juvenile justice system, while recommending proven practices and strategies for reform. The task force will exist as a partnership between county and state leaders, as well as other leaders involved in the juvenile justice system. Their goal will be to develop an ambitious, innovative, and thorough analysis of Michigan’s juvenile justice system, complete with recommendations for changes in state law, policy, and appropriations to improve youth outcomes.
