By 2020, Juvenile Recidivism will be reduced to 17%.
Where We Are Now
Why This Is Important
Tracking repeat offenders (recidivism) is a core measure of how well juvenile departments are at maintaining community safety. Having low recidivism demonstrates success at identifying high risk youth and providing the most effective interventions.
How Much Does the County Influence This?
Having adequate law enforcement countywide is essential to identifying delinquent youth and our ability to hold them accountable. County funding for evidence based and “best practice” interventions is essential to ensure safe, healthy and secure communities.
