New Hampshire is one of seven states, cities, and counties nationwide to be selected for a training program designed to revamp the state's juvenile probation system.

The training will take place next month at Georgetown University.

The list of attendees from New Hampshire include staff from the Division for Children, Youth and Families, a circuit court judge, the state's child advocate, a public defender, and police officers.

The program promises to help the state change its approach to juvenile probation from one based on surveillance and sanctions, to one that promotes positive behavior.

New Hampshire will receive support from experts at Georgetown for a year following the training.
