OJJDP Releases Fact Sheet on Delinquency Cases in Juvenile Court

Posted by GVT Admin on Jan 4, 2021 10:42:38 AM

OJJDP has released "Delinquency Cases in Juvenile Court, 2018." This fact sheet presents statistics on delinquency cases handled in U.S. juvenile courts from 2005 to 2018. During that period, the number of delinquency cases involving juveniles declined 55 percent. Decreases were experienced across four offense categories: property, public order, person, and drug law violation cases. The estimates are based on data from more than 2,500 courts with jurisdiction over 87 percent of the nation's juvenile population in 2018. This fact sheet is derived from the OJJDP-sponsored report “Juvenile Court Statistics 2018” and was developed with support from the National Institute of Justice.

“If there was ever a good time to make sure that not a single young person spends a single day in detention or placement unless there is an immediate and severe risk to community safety, this is it,” says Nate Balis, director of the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Juvenile Justice Strategy Group. “This is the time for juvenile justice agencies to scrutinize every detention and placement decision and to review — if not reconsider — every policy that leans toward confinement.”
