CM Catania calls for recommendations on preventing youth violence

At-large CM David Catania, chair of the Committee on Health, has called on Nixon Peabody LLP to prepare a report examining
possible solutions to the District’s chronic problem of youth and adolescent violence.   The firm will study a wide range of proposals to address this issue, including the possibility of early, targeted mental health intervention, needed juvenile justice reforms, and increased accountability for parents and guardians.

The announcement has surprised long-time prevention and intervention advocates and practitioners.
