The Raise the Age Coalition is building momentum towards finally  making substantive change to the laws in North Carolina.   The North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association is the latest group to throw its support behind raising the age in North Carolina.

Previously, the Association’s Executive Committee voted to support raising the age.  Just this month, the entire body voted to adopted the recommendation of the Executive Committee.

The Sheriff”s Association has been a long-running and vocal opponent of raising the age in the past.  Their  support marks a major step towards making history in North Carolina and raising the age of adjudication for juveniles. As a member of the coalition, we applaud the Sheriff’s Association for supporting this important initiative.
