Juvenile justice Congressional briefing for policymakers at US Capitol draws turnaway crowd
Women’s Re-Entry Program
The Lloyd Society, in collaboration with UCLA, Prototypes and the Los Angeles County Re-Entry Council, is conducting a 2-year outcome evaluation funded by the California Endowment to test the efficacy of an experimental women's re-entry court program for women offenders. Specifically, the study will determine the relative effectiveness of a women-focused (WF) re-entry court program with wrap-around services, compared to incarceration, to promote positive behaviors and health and well-being among women parolees and probationers. Results of this project will address the existing gap in knowledge related to treating drug-dependent women offenders, thus strengthening the services available in the community for this population of women.

Lloyd Society Director Leads Congressional Briefing
On October 26 at the U.S. Capitol, The Lloyd Society's Executive Director, Dr. Catherine Gallagher, leads a Congressional briefing in the Senate Meeting Room at the U.S. Capitol Visitors Center. The briefing, entitled "Juvenile Justice in the Age of the Second Chance Act, the Youth Promise Act, and the JJDP Reauthorization Bill: Research Guided Policy Implications for Maximizing Reentry Initiatives for Adolescents," is co-sponsored by George Mason University's Center for Evidence-Based Crime Policy and the Center for Justice Leadership and Management directed.
Leading researchers, including The Lloyd Society's Dr. Adam Dobrin, Dr. Nena Messina, Dr. Susie Nemes, and Ajima Olaghere are among those invited to brief policymakers about a common theme: how to meet the goals of the Second Chance Act with the available evidence across a variety of critical domains for adolescents in the juvenile justice system.
