Poconos Juvenile Crime Decline Reported

Posted By Patrick M. Rogan || 27-Sep-2009

The Pocono Record reported yesterday that juvenile probation placements have decreased by 20 percent in the Poconos, and that home foreclosure rates might have something to do with the change.

Though there is currently no measurable evidence to support the claim, Monroe County's Chief Probation Officer recently told the Monroe County Commissioners that the he believes the county's negative growth - and specifically it's loss of newly arrived young people - has positively impacted the local crime rate.

I am interested in learning whether the probation officer's observations and assessment turn out to be accurate. In the meantime, I will continue to provide high quality legal counsel to juvenile and adult defendants in criminal cases throughout the Pocono Mountain region of Pennsylvania.
