Redeploy Illinois is a program of the Department of Human Services. It seeks to reduce juvenile incarceration through community-based programs to promote positive outcomes for at-risk youth. In program pilots, youth had a 27% lower recidivism rate than youth who did not participate (1).
The program serves 46 counties. As of February 2016, 24 of these counties have stopped operating the program due to the budget impasse (2).
