Maryland Department of Juvenile Services
The Maryland departments of juvenile services and education are defending the dismissal of 10 veteran teachers from four youth detention centers in western Maryland.
Maryland’s head of the Department of Juvenile Services is scheduled to meet with Carroll County officials to discuss a proposal to build a new detention center for girls in the county.
A Maryland board has postponed a vote on an $11.7 million contract to allow a juvenile justice facility in Carroll County to double its size from 48 people to 96.
Maryland Department of Juvenile Services Secretary Sam Abed says the department will bring large contracts needed to run the agency to state officials to review in a more timely manner.
