Detention Reports

The Detention reports contain statewide and county-specific data describing admissions to and releases from juvenile detention facilities.

There are three sets of data for each report.

  • Detention Admissions Reasons by Demographics -- a unique count of admissions to a detention facility during the year, by the reason the youth was admitted to the facility and demographic characteristics (gender, age, and race/ethnicity) of the youth being admitted.
  • Detention Length of Stay by Demographics -- for each detention release during the year, the length of time spent in the facility (length of stay) by demographic characteristics (gender, age, and race/ethnicity) of the youth. (The admission may have occurred prior to the reporting year.) 
  • Detention Length of Stay by Admission Reason -- For each detention release during the year, the number of days the youth spent in the facility (length of stay) by the reason the youth was admitted to the facility. (Note: The associated “admission” may have occurred in a prior reporting year.)
More details are in the front matter of each report.

Caution Regarding 2020 Data: The data in the JJIS Annual Reports for 2020 differs significantly from reports from previous years due to the global Coronavirus pandemic. There were 3,833 fewer referrals to County Juvenile Departments in 2020 compared to 2019, a reduction of more than a third. As a result, one should use caution when using 2020 data to make comparisons across years.
