Comprehensive Juvenile Justice System Study
The Consultant Project Team would like to acknowledge the assistance and support provided by so many Lancaster County officials and staff as well as representatives from many other public and private organizations throughout the community. Through the interviews conducted with these persons and the documentary materials they provided, the Project Team was able to gain valuable insight into the nature and operation of juvenile services in Lancaster County.
We also want to thank the members of the Project Steering Committee who met with the Consultants during each on-site work period and who devoted additional time and effort to gathering information for this study.
