Hahn Issues Statement Following BSCC Decision on Probation Youth Facilities

Los Angeles, CA– Today, Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn issued the following statement after the Board of State and Community Corrections voted to find both Los Padrinos Juvenile Hall and Barry J. Nidorf Juvenile Hall unsuitable:

“It is unfortunate that the Probation Department made excuses at today’s BSCC meeting instead of owning up to the unacceptable conditions at two of our probation facilities. The BSCC wants to see real change and I expect the same.

Multiple probation chiefs have been unable to fix the problems facing the department. I am concerned about the future of the Probation Department and whether they are capable of the reform that we all know needs to happen.”
