Director Pough to Host More Town Halls

Director Pough at Upstate Regionalization Town Hall
Fri, 03/15/2019

The South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice, under the leadership of Director Freddie Pough, is preparing to fundamentally shift the way the agency serves youth, families and victims in South Carolina. Through the process of "Regionalization," DJJ will serve committed youth in smaller facilities closer to their home communities, as opposed to them all residing in centralized, distant state facility.

Last Fall, Director Pough hosted town halls in the Upstate and Low Country regions. This Spring, he's hosting town hall meetings in the Midlands and Pee Dee regions for the general public, lawmakers, community partners and media to learn more about the agency's Regionalization plan.
