For those who run afoul of the law some eventually land inside juvenile hall.

Projected budget of $11,016,000 for 300 average youth, the average cost per child $102 per day or $36,720 a year.

It's not cheap to support kids - it's even more expensive to incarcerate them, considering the required security measures and the cost of programs.

Gang activity is receiving "spectacular" local media coverage "far out of proportion to the problem."

In the past, we where not seeing the more gang-oriented kind of kids. Now we are seeing more of them.

Touring Juvenile Hall, one can't help but notice the emphasis. Juvie Hall is operating at capacity.
