A movement to end solitary confinement for juveniles

Stop Solitary for Kids is a campaign that focuses on alternatives for children and teenagers housed in juvenile detention centers. Through public awareness, staff training, and local, state and federal policy and legislation models, the initiative’s goal is to end solitary confinement for incarcerated young people.

For state administrators, the momentum to end solitary confinement practices mandates support from correctional officers. They still require the necessary tools to diffuse situations safely, yet continue to provide data on the impact separation has on juveniles.

The campaign represents significant change in isolation practices with juveniles temporarily confined to their rooms if they are not an immediate threat to others. The now two-year old policy shift has led to an 89 percent reduction in seclusion practices and incidences of violence decreasing by 22 percent.

The movement has also resulted in overall service improvements in facilities throughout the country.

One mistake should not have lifelong consequences. If your child is facing criminal charges, you need to take proactive steps and contact a criminal defense attorney.
