YRS Recidivism for Release Cohorts 2010-2012
Group: Criminal Justice Council
The Juvenile Recidivism in Delaware report is completed by the Statistical Analysis Center for the Division of Youth and Rehabilitative Services (YRS) as well as the state of Delaware’s criminal justice community. It is an analysis of youth released in 2010 through 2012 from a YRS Level 5 or Level 4 Secure facility. As required, there were two measures analyzed for this report: re-arrest and re-commitment. This study focuses on in-state recidivism events following release from a Level 5 or Level 4 juvenile facility. Youth become subjects of this study at the release event in which they are at risk of re-offending and being re-arrested or re-admitted. Each youth can thus be counted only once as a recidivist after a given release, however, a return to a secure Level 5 or Level 4 facility can mean the youth could be counted as a recidivist in another cohort following his next release. The measure of youth re-arrest for a felony within 12 months was requested by policy makers in October of 1998 in an effort for better cross-jurisdictional comparisons. SAC has retained this measure, in this study, for purposes of comparison to previous reports on juvenile recidivism in Delaware.
