This information pertains to juveniles who, while under the jurisdiction of the Juvenile Court, were committed to out-of-home placement (excluding detention, shelter care, and diagnostic placements) for a period greater than 28 days at least one time in conjunction with a juvenile delinquency disposition.
This dataset is contained within the Juvenile Court Judges' Commission 2018 Statewide Juvenile Justice Outcome Measure report: this report reflects outcomes of juvenile offenders whose cases were closed during the report period and who have received a period of supervision from a county juvenile probation department. These reported outcomes are associated with community protection, accountability, and competency development.
The proportion of juveniles whose cases were closed and experienced a placement episode decreased in 2018 to 18.3% from 22.4% in 2017. At the same time, the median length of placement remained steady at 9.9 months.
