An exciting update - our work with youth civil citations has transformed the juvenile justice system in Duval County. Last year, 82% percent of eligible youth received civil citations and only 112 youth were arrested for eligible offenses. This makes Duval County one of the top performers in Florida. Last year, we also got our Sheriff to commit to be more transparent and share important crime data with the public. Because of our work, Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams began issuing bi-annual data reports on his website last summer. ICARE also got all principals, assistant principals and deans in Duval County trained in restorative practices. Duval Superintendent Dr. Diana Greene fulfilled her commitment to us and went to Louisville with ICARE leaders to participate whole school restorative practices training.

Our work is improving schools and keeps students from being caught in the criminal justice system. ... See MoreSee Less
