ABOUT ZERO YOUTH DETENTION

King County is committed to creating communities where residents are safe, free from systemic oppression and marginalization.  All youth in King County deserve a positive community so they can thrive as adults. 

Research shows that youth have a better chance at positive adulthood when they don’t interact with the juvenile legal system.  Zero Youth Detention is collaborating with youth, families, employees, businesses, system partners and any anyone else wanting to make their communities safe.
