The consent decree, reached between Baltimore City and the U.S. Department of Justice requires a youth plan to include “an assessment of the city’s current efforts, including existing “diversion programs, community-based alternatives to incarceration, and treatment options for youth in need of mental health treatment, drug treatment, or other services”. The youth assessment is part of a draft plan recently released by the consent decree monitoring team.

ACY’s Director of Youth Justice Policy, Maurice Vann is quoted in this Baltimore Sun article stating that ACY plans to closely monitor the youth assessment and the recommendations of the consent decree monitoring unit.
