JUVENILE JUSTICE FACES REDUCTION IN BUDGET

Alabama: JUVENILE JUSTICE FACES REDUCTION IN BUDGET

The Administrative Office of the Courts estimated proposed cuts in its budget would reduce funding for juvenile justice by $8 million and terminate 200 probation officers.

All the estimates for budget year 2005 are preliminary. However, concerns are mounting as Gov. Bob Riley’s administration asks agencies to present reports on how a 56 percent cut would affect them.
