Youth detention center
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.
Juveniles charged as adults are currently kept in the same Baltimore jail as adults, but that is about to change. And it won’t take building a new jail from scratch to do it.
No more jails. That’s the message of dozens of people protesting the state’s plan to build a new youth detention facility in downtown Baltimore.
