Full report in PDF format

  • Most of the resources in the Department of Juvenile Justice prevention budget are not directed toward high-risk youth to deter them from entering the delinquency system.
  • The Department does not measure long-term outcomes of most of its prevention programs and therefore often cannot evaluate program effectiveness or use this information to make allocation decisions.
