Program Description

Tulare County has used JAG funds to implement the Closing the Circle program, an education-based strategy, that provides evidence-based instruction to at-risk students at selected middle schools and court and community schools to reduce gang affiliation, low academic achievement, drug abuse, and other problem behavior associated with delinquency and crime. The suppression component focuses on juvenile and young adult offenders and refers appropriate youth to the educational component for relevant programs.
