Juvenile Offenders and Victims: A National Report.
Snyder, Howard N.; Sickmund, Melissa
Consolidating the most requested information on juvenile offenders and victims in the United States, this report presents statistical data in a user friendly format. The report is designed as a series of briefing papers on specific topics and contains short sections designed to be read in isolation from other parts of the report. The report is divided into seven chapters: (1) "Juvenile Population Characteristics"; (2) "Juvenile Victims"; (3) "Juvenile Offenders"; (4) "Juvenile Justice System Structure and Process"; (5) "Law Enforcement and Juvenile Crime"; (6) "Juvenile Courts and Juvenile Crime"; and (7) "Juveniles in Correctional Facilities." (Although primarily intended as a reference for the juvenile justice community, the document can also serve as a reference for teachers in law-related education (LRE) settings containing criminal justice components.) The report includes graphs, charts, maps, and diagrams. The inside cover of the report lists sources of additional information. Contains 19 references. (TSV)
