Shelby Co. lawmakers host town hall on public safety ahead of special session


One of those attendees was Dr. Altha Stewart, the senior associate dean for Community Health Engagement at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center and the director for Youth Advocacy and Well-Being.

“The pipeline into the justice system is filled with kids who wanted to do better, they just didn’t know how,” said Dr. Stewart.

Stewart says there are no re-entry programs for children who come out of places like Wilder Youth Development Center.

She would like lawmakers to create better reentry plans for young people who get into trouble with crime.
