Description

In 1997 the State of Utah initiated an ambitious early intervention program that uniquely combined sentencing reform and graduated sanctions in an attempt to reduce juvenile crime. Comprised of juvenile sentencing guidelines, funding for 60 more probation officers and a new intermediate sanction titled State Supervision, the program was designed to bring about a reduction in juvenile recidivism rates and reduce the number of offenders committed to the Division of Youth Corrections by 5%. This report evaluates the impact of this program.
