Juvenile offenders and victims : 1997 update on violence : statistics summary by Melissa Sickmund( Book )

22 editions published between 1966 and 1997 in English and held by 805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is the second update to "Juvenile Offenders and Victims: a National Report" published in 1995. Drawing on new analysis of statistical series developed by various Federal agencies, it provides answers to the questions most often asked about trends in youth violence and victimization. This report provides information that the wave of violence by juveniles that the United States has experienced in the last 10 years may be subsiding. Serious violent crimes by juveniles dropped 25% between 1994 and 1995. The most recent data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation also report substantial declines in juvenile arrests for violence crimes. There is a reported decline of nearly 20% for murders by juveniles between 1993 and 1995. This report contains the raw information needed to address the problems of juvenile crime and victimization in sections on victims, offenders, and corrections. Current levels of juvenile crime, although below those of recent years, are still not acceptable. In addition, statistics continue to show high rates of victimization of juveniles. Twenty-five percent of all known juvenile homicide offenders were reported in the five U.S. counties that contain the cities of Los Angeles (California), Chicago (Illinois), Houston (Texas), Detroit (Michigan), and New York City. The forces that drove past increases in juvenile crime still exist, although there is more hope that society can counteract them. (Contains 39 graphs, 1 figure, 17 tables, 3 maps, and 39 references.)

Juvenile offenders and victims : a national report by Howard N Snyder( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report offers the Congress, state legislators, and other state and local policymakers, professors and teachers, juvenile justice professionals, and concerned citizens solid answers to the most frequently asked questions about the nature of juvenile crime and victimization and about the justice system's response. Citing fbi and other data sources, this report demonstrates that the rate of juvenile violent crime arrests - after peaking in 1994 - has consistently decreased over the past several years. However, it has yet to return to the 1988 level, the year in which dramatic increases in juvenile crime arrests were first seen. This report also summarizes data on school violence and describes the recent downturn in the violent victimization of youth. New findings from the 1997 National Longitudinal Study of Youth, providing the most current data on self-reported delinquent and antisocial behavior, are included in this report. Data from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention's new national Census of Juveniles in Residential Placements, summarizing key findings about the characteristics of juvenile offenders in custody are also presented. Each of the seven chapters includes several tables and figures as well as a list of references. An index is also provided. (Mka)

The youngest delinquents : offenders under age 15 by Jeffrey A Butts( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents findings of a study that explored issues related to juvenile delinquency by examined the most recent data on juvenile arrests and the delinquency cases processed by U.S. juvenile courts. The study compared the characteristics of young offenders arrested in recent years with those arrested in 1980 and analyzed the responses of juvenile courts to those offenders once they had been charged. Findings show that offenders aged 12 or younger were involved in 9% of all juvenile arrests, and that arrests of juveniles aged 13 and 14 grew disproportionately. Arrest rates for juveniles aged 12 or younger were far lower than for older juveniles. However, Violent Crime Index arrests declined 3% for all juveniles between 1994 and 1995. Similar decreases were seen for those aged 12 and younger and aged 15 and older, with a 5% drop in violent crime arrests for those aged 13 and 14. Between 1985 and 1994, the number of delinquency cases involving 13-year-olds increased more than cases involving juveniles of any other age. In spite of these increases, the actual number of young juveniles remained relatively small when compared with the caseload of older juvenile offenders seen by law enforcement agencies and the courts. Recent trends are particularly encouraging as they relate to the delinquent behavior of offenders aged 13 and 14. Findings suggest that juvenile courts and juvenile justice agencies should continue preventive services and early intervention for offenders aged 14 and younger. They also suggest, however, that it is inaccurate to depict the typical juvenile offender as significantly younger than the offenders of 10 or 15 years ago. (Sld)
Court careers of juvenile offenders by Howard N Snyder( Book )

7 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Past research has shown that a relatively small number of youths are responsible for a large proportion of the offenses committed by juveniles, leading juvenile justice practitioners to ask what the courts can do to intervene early to deter these youth from committing further serious delinquent acts. To answer this question, a research study was undertaken to examine, from the court's perspective, the delinquent careers of chronic juvenile offenders. The research involved the analysis of the court career and offense patterns of nearly 70,000 youth in Phoenix, Arizona and the state of Utah. The findings suggest that juvenile courts have an opportunity to intervene in the lives of a large percentage of youth at a time when problems are apparent and also have the authority to effect change. The finding that a youth referred to court for a second time before the age of 16 could, with a high degree of certainty, be considered a chronic offender implies that the courts should not wait until the youth has returned for the fourth or fifth time before taking strong action. This report describes the research conducted in Arizona and Utah and the findings revealed. Chapter 1 discusses the need for court career research. Chapter 2 explains the sources of juvenile court career data. Chapter 3 describes youth with juvenile court careers; chapter 4 explores the development of juvenile court careers; and chapter 5 characterizes juvenile court career types. Chapter 6 presents a summary and conclusions. The appendix explains the recoding of offense codes into reporting codes. Numerous tables display the statistical data. (Nb)
