Description

The Fourth Judicial District of Minnesota, which is synonymous with Hennepin County, is a JDAI (Juvenile Detention Alternative Initiative) site and supports the following study to analyze key decision points in juvenile delinquency processing: arrest decisions (as operationalized by being processed for a new offense at the Juvenile Detention Center (JDC)) and how these arrests translate into formal charges. This study will analyze offense changes from arrest to charging by race, gender, offense type, and arresting police location. Additionally, this analysis will include an examination of arrests for new offenses where a formal charge was not issued by race, ethnicity, gender, offense type and location. The sample includes all youths brought to the Juvenile Detention Center for a new offense in downtown Minneapolis from April 2008 to June 2009 (1,199 new offense arrests).
