IPR, Record-Eagle collaborate on special series: 'Kids in Crisis'
If you’re a young person in Michigan, and you’re arrested, what happens next can depend largely on where you are.
Different counties have different approaches to how they handle juveniles accused of crimes, or those who are considered a danger to themselves or others.
And in northern Michigan, scarce resources can make the problem even more complicated.
IPR News and the Traverse City Record-Eagle are about to launch a multi-part series exploring the state’s juvenile justice system. The first story appears in Sunday’s Record-Eagle, and will be heard Monday during Morning Edition and All Things Considered.
IPR’s Michael Livingston and Record-Eagle reporter Elizabeth Brewer are working on this project. They previewed their work in a conversation with IPR’s Dan Wanschura. Listen, above.
