  • Statistics for the Juvenile Diversion Program

     

    Of the clients who completed the program in 2010, 71% completed successfully, and 29% did not complete successfully. Those who completed successfully had their charges dismissed by the court. Those who failed to complete successfully were sent back to court for sentencing and further sanctions.

       # of Clients  Percent
    Open at Beginning of Year  130  
    New Intakes 214  
    Successful Completions 101 71%
    Terminated Unsuccessfully 42 29%
    Open End of Year 201

     

    Since a major goal of the Juvenile Diversion Program is to reduce further criminal acts, tracking recidivism by former clients is also important. Below are the recidivism figures for the juveniles who successfully completed the program from 2006-2009:

    Year of Term Date 2006 2007 2008 2009 Total
