OJJDP Survey of Youth in Residential Placement Series, Bulletin, 16 page(s)
Presents results from the Survey of Youth in Residential Placement (SYRP) on the characteristics of the facilities in which youth are confined and the programs provided to them. SYRP is the first comprehensive national study to gather information about youth in custody by interviewing the detained offenders. Findings also describe the security in facilities where juveniles are housed, the types of youth offenders in each program, the disciplinary measures used in the facilities, and youth's access to legal representation and emotional support.
