Juveniles, Joyrides, and Justice: Radio Special

Car Theft Public Awareness

Connecticut Public
Signs outside of the South Windsor Police Department encourage residents to lock their cars at night.

All summer long, we heard about spiking crime rates, stolen cars and a failed juvenile justice system, but what do the numbers show? And what do those who actually work with juvenile offenders think is happening? Has the pandemic had any affect on the juvenile justice system?

This half hour radio special explores these issues through reporting from Connecticut Public's Accountability Project.

Walter Smith Randolph is the Investigative Editor and Director of The Accountability Project at Connecticut Public Broadcasting. The New York City native comes to CT Public after a decade of reporting at local tv stations across the country.
Jacqueline Rabe Thomas was an investigative reporter with Connecticut Public’s Accountability Project from July 2021 until August 2022.
Jim Haddadin is a data journalist for The Accountability Project, Connecticut Public's investigative reporting team. He was previously an investigative producer for NBC Boston, and wrote for newspapers in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
