State Custody Rates, 1997 (NCJ 183108) December 2000
4 page(s)
Sickmund, M.
Presents State-by-State statistics on custody rates for juvenile delinquents and status offenders held in public and private facilities. Using Census of Juveniles in Residential Placement (CJRP) findings for 1997, the Bulletin compares the role of private facilities, where most status offenders are held, with that of public facilities, where most delinquent offenders are detained. State rankings based solely on custody rates for delinquents in public facilities differ from rankings based on rates for all juveniles in both public and private facilities. The detailed data provided in this Bulletin will enable readers to better understand the role that public and private custodial facilities play in their own States and across the Nation.
