Las Vegas, Nev. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) spoke with criminal justice advocates, stakeholders and juvenile and family court judges at The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCJFCJ)’s National Conference of Juvenile Justice.
“Juvenile and family courts are important parts of our criminal justice system that help support children, families and communities in Nevada and across the country. For over 80 years NCJFCJ has brought together criminal justice advocates and professionals to provide skills training and policy support that can make all the difference for families and children that come into contact with the court system. I will continue to fight in the Senate to give law enforcement and criminal justice professionals the tools they need to combat human trafficking, ensure the humane treatment of all incarcerated juveniles and bolster funding for innovative rehabilitation programs that can help rebuild lives.”
