Juvenile Offenders in Residential Placement, 1997 (FS 9996) March 1999
2 page(s)
Gallagher, C. A.
Presents initial analyses from the 1997 Census of Juveniles in Residential Placement (CJRP). This new census replaces the old Census of Public and Private Juvenile Detention, Correctional, and Shelter Facilities (also known as the Children in Custody or CIC series) that previously reported on juveniles in facilities intended to hold juvenile offenders. CJRP collected information on each offender in residential placement including age, race, sex, and offense. Information from this Fact Sheet shows that of the young offenders in residential facilities, the bulk were minority males who had committed serious personal or property offenses. Two statistical tables are included.
