2018 Annual Report

Thursday, April 4, 2019

The 2018 Annual Report for the Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services (DYRS) highlights the agency’s efforts to help youth transition to a productive and self-sustaining adulthood, which underscores our core belief that this also serves as the most effective public safety strategy. The agency focused on enhancing community partnerships in fiscal year 2018 to support youth success while keeping them in the least restrictive and most homelike environments within the community. DYRS expanded restorative justice practices and we increased our efforts to engage youth and their families through the Credible Messenger initiative. Learn more about these and other DYRS efforts in the 2018 Annual Report.
