BALTIMORE (AP) - A new report done by the attorney general’s office says several youth detention facilities in Maryland lack of supervision, treatment and educational opportunities for the juveniles who are incarcerated across the state.

The report describes dismal conditions at most of dozen youth facilities under review in Maryland, including maximum-security jails as well as lower security youth centers. It says they are dangerous and lack fundamental services such as educational opportunities, mental health treatment and recreational activities.

The report is the first assessment of youth facilities in the state for the year. The Juvenile Justice Monitoring Unit releases a new report on a quarterly basis that also includes recommendations.

The report was released in May.
