ANNAPOLIS, Md. — The Maryland Task Force on Juvenile Court Jurisdiction is scheduled to meet.

The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday in Annapolis.

The task force was formed in June to study current laws concerning the jurisdiction of juvenile courts. It’s also reviewing the current research on best practices in the judicial system for dealing with youth who have committed further crimes.

The panel also will recommend whether to retain automatic adult charges for youth committing certain offenses. The panel also is examining how to reduce the number of young people committed to adult detention centers and prisons.
