Governor Gary Herbert visited Decker Lake Youth Center in West Valley City Wednesday, and he met with some of the juveniles offenders who are incarcerated there.

“We recognize that sometimes our young people get off on the wrong foot, going down the wrong pathway. We have an opportunity to help them and correct that,” Herbert said.

Gov. Herbert has a team of people who give him guidance on Utah’s juvenile justice system, but he heard directly from some of those juveniles Wednesday.
