Description

While this Executive Summary is organized around these eight tasks for clarity, the broad scope of the juvenile justice system coupled with the complex, interconnected nature of the system stages does not lend itself to a conventional data collection plan. Instead, the body of this report includes chapters dedicated to each system stage: Law Enforcement, County Attorneys, Juvenile Courts, Juvenile Probation, and Detention and Residential Facilities. Within each chapter, key decision points affecting youths’ status in the system are identified and ranked both for importance to understanding youth in the juvenile justice system, and for the feasibility of statewide data collection. Recommendations for improved data collection, analysis, and reporting complete each chapter. These chapters, in concert, create the overall data improvement plan for Minnesota.
