A Comparative Analysis of Standards and State Practices: Juvenile Dispositions and Corrections. Volume Nine of Nine.
The Task Force to Develop Standards and Goals for Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention was initiated in the Spring of 1975 by the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA) of the U.S. Department of Justice. The efforts of this task force resulted in nine reports, each one dealing with one aspect of the Juvenile Justice System. This particular volume presents an overview of the critical issues regarding juvenile dispositions and corrections, and presents a series of four comparative analyses which explore the following: (1) who should be the authority to impose and modify dispositions; (2) what time limits should be applied to dispositional orders and the court's continuing jurisdictional authority; (3) what procedures should be employed in the dispositional hearing; and (4) what are the rights of the juvenile to receive services.
