Annual Report FY2002

Construction Projects

The Legislature has funded considerable expansion to the state's juvenile corrections system in recent years, which has allowed the Texas Youth Commission to keep offenders long enough for successful rehabilitation.

In Fiscal Year 1994, the Commission operated only 1,648 state-owned beds. By Fiscal Year 2005, there will be 4,952 state-operated beds in the Texas Youth Commission system.
