Supervisor Hahn Releases Statement on Board’s Decision to Terminate Probation Chief

Los Angeles, CA — Today, Chair of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Janice Hahn released the following statement regarding the Board’s unanimous decision to terminate Los Angeles County Probation Chief Adolfo Gonzales:

“Our juvenile halls are in crisis. The state has found them unsuitable, and they are at risk of being shut down. Youth are being hurt and are not attending school. Staff are being attacked and many are not showing up to work. There void in leadership starting from the top has allowed this situation to fester. Our Board’s decision to terminate Chief Gonzales is only the first step of a long road to fixing our juvenile halls and supporting the youth in our care and the staff who work with them.”
