Juveniles Charged as Adults: Trends Analysis and Population Projections
Group: Maryland Department of Juvenile Services
The focus of this report is the population of youth charged as adults and held in Maryland’s detention facilities (in accused status). The Maryland Department of Juvenile Services (DJS) partnered with the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention (GOCCP) to contract with an outside consultant to develop a forecast of the population of juveniles charged as adults and held in State and local detention facilities. Data collected as part of the Compliance Monitoring Data Collection System (CMDCS) maintained by the GOCCP were used for this purpose. Compliance data are systematically collected by GOCCP to ensure that Maryland meets the requirements of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act with regard to juveniles held in adult jails (e.g., sight and sound separation from adult offenders). GOCCP collects these data biennially from detention facilities in Maryland. These data were deemed the best available electronic information source for juveniles charged as adults and admitted to detention facilities.
