Law enforcement, others to share notes on repeat juvenile offenders
Police, prosecutors, corrections workers and perhaps school and mental health officials will soon meet to share notes on 81 Milwaukee-area juvenile offenders in an effort to thwart future crime.  By assembling the panel to jointly review the list of high-rate offenders, the collective wisdom of the group can be tapped to help determine which ones may be truly dangerous - or heading that way, said Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn.  That could lead to better decisions on which offenders require the most serious consequences, Flynn said during a meeting of the Community Justice Council executive committee. The council includes top local political and criminal justice officials.  "If we don't get it right with juveniles, we are going to pay for it for the rest of their lives," Flynn said.
