  • Property offense case rates are higher than the rates for other offenses. In 2013, for example, juvenile courts processed 11.7 property offense cases for every 1,000 youth under juvenile court jurisdiction, compared with 8.7 public order offense cases, 8.9 person offense cases, and 4.5 drug offense cases.
