Juvenile Justice Geography, Policy, Practice, & Statistics Website Features Interactive DMC Dashboards

September 20, 2016

The Juvenile Justice Geography, Policy, Practice, & Statistics (JJGPS) website, an online resource of national and state statistics charting juvenile justice reform, offers a section on racial-ethnic fairness in state juvenile justice systems. This section features interactive Colorado Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice dashboards that allow users to compare system involvement data among five racial groups across juvenile justice system points statewide. Also featured is the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice’s Disproportionate Minority Contact Racial Ethnic Disparity Benchmark Report, an interactive dashboard display that enables users to compare data across judicial areas statewide.

The JJGPS is coordinated by the National Center for Juvenile Justice and is one of several strategies in support of juvenile justice reform through the Models for Change initiative.
