Governor Mead Seeks to Collect Juvenile Justice Data

Townsquare Media

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Gov. Matt Mead is asking state lawmakers to budget $500,000 for a system that would allow officials to track information about juvenile offenders in the state.

Tony Young, Mead’s deputy chief of staff, says the money would cover installation of the system to track data about young offenders at the five juvenile detention centers in the state, as well as at the Wyoming Boys School and Wyoming Girls School.

The state has struggled for years with getting solid data about juvenile offenders, including how often they’re arrested, what they’re arrested for and whether they’re treated differently in different counties.

The Legislature’s Joint Judiciary Committee last month voted against endorsing the funding.

Mead is pushing the funding as an item in the budget recommendations he’s set to present to lawmakers on Monday.
