A Guide to Our Juvenile Delinquent System: The Family Court and the Juvenile Transgressor. [Volume II].
Addelston, Lorraine W., Ed.
A study of the criminal justice system in New York City led to the publication in December 1982 of "A Guide to Our Criminal Justice System." A portion of the guide dealt with the steps involved in the arrest to disposition of a juvenile. On July 1, 1983, the New York State Legislature's Act to "Recodify the Family Court Act" went into effect. The present publication describes the highlights of the current steps involved in the arrest to disposition of juveniles and updates the sequence in accordance with the 1983 regulations governing the Family Court and juvenile transgressors. A skeletal organization chart of the agencies involved and a short glossary accompany the text. (MLF)
