Price Outlines Changes In Juvenile Court System
Floyd County Juvenile Court Judge Gregg Price gave Exchangites a detailed view of the changes in the way juveniles are handled now in the courts. Although his court hears around 250 cases a month, he was happy to report almost a 50% reduction in the number of local children in foster care. He stressed the new proactive approach to young people and the training that families now receive from agencies like the Exchange Club Family Resource Center that are working hard to prevent the removal of children from the home and into foster care. Judge Price said, “Our communities children are not DFCS kids.”
