Juvenile incarceration rates across the nation have continued to decrease over the past 10 years; this includes the facility that serves the City of Alexandria, the City of Falls Church, and Arlington County. This survey is part of a comprehensive analysis and study of operational and cost efficiencies of the Northern Virginia Juvenile Detention Center (Center), including the possibility of closing the Center due to underutilization and detaining youth in another center in Northern Virginia. This study is being administered by The Moss Group, a criminal justice consulting organization partnering with the City of Alexandria, City of Falls Church, and County of Arlington. Your opinion is greatly valued, and we want to hear from you. The survey includes seven questions and should only take 5 minutes to complete. Your anonymous feedback will be shared with officials who work with the Center. Results of the survey will be posted online in future reports to be published in the spring of 2020. Thank you for your time and participation!
