Juvenile and Criminal Justice
NCCD is monitoring how COVID-19 is affecting the nation’s juvenile and criminal justice systems. Visit our COVID-19 and the Justice System page for detailed information on reductions in incarcerated populations, how “shelter in place” orders are impacting system involvement, recommendations for helping system-involved people both inside and outside of institutions, and successful video visits with young children. There is also a list of further resources for the field.

Survey: How Is Your Agency Responding to the Challenges of COVID-19?
If you work for a corrections agency or other justice-oriented agency, we invite you to complete a brief survey about how your agency is identifying and responding to challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. We will compile and share the survey results with the field in the coming days.
