The Indiana Department of Correction is involved in a two-year study on the effect of expanded family visitation policies on youth incarcerated at juvenile facilities. Indiana Division of Youth Services was one of two sites to pilot the family engagement standards Vera Institute of Justice developed with the Performance-based Standards Learning Institute in 2012. Indiana changed visitation policy at the beginning of 2013 and officials say they saw visitation rates double within a few months. Vera will examine the impact of the increase in family visits on young people’s behavioral and educational outcomes. Vera will also study the impact, if any, of enhanced visitation policies on recidivism rates for young people released from juvenile correctional facilities.
