WYNNE, AR (KAIT)- Cross County officials met Thursday to discuss ways to help decrease the number of juvenile cases in the county.
The room was filled with about 25 county officials from school administration to law enforcement. The group discussed ways to cut down the number of juvenile cases after doubling in two years.
"Anytime we can provide positive reinforcements on the front end and utilize least restrictive measures," Keith said.
In 2011, juvenile cases cost Cross County over $28,000 and in 2012, over $56,000.
