  1. Miami-Dade County Florida Juvenile Justice Model Presented by: Dr. Gladys Negron April 12 & 13, 2011

  2. Miami-Dade County Florida

  3. Population in Florida • Total Population: 17 million • 4th largest state in U.S. Miami-Dade

  4. Population in Miami-Dade County • Miami-Dade County, Florida • Total population: 2.5 million • Juvenile population: 416,924 • Largest county in Florida • 8th Largest county in the U.S. • 61% Hispanic • 20% Black/African American * Based on population estimates from the American Community Survey, U.S. Census Bureau

  5. The Vision To significantly reduce the arrest rate by: • Providing positive identification • Identifying needs early • Referring appropriately to address service needs • Applying alternative intervention and prevention services for youth at risk of becoming involved with the juvenile justice system

  6. DATA Information on juveniles identifying trends and patterns allows the service community to offer programs and services that relate to the actual population. ASSESSMENT Appropriate assessment identifies individual needs at the earliest point possible in order to place juveniles in the right program before the crimes committed become more serious. JUVENILE JUSTICE PARTNER COLLABORATION Allows the players involved with juveniles to "move the rules to fit the child and not move the child to fit the rules.” Elements of the National Demonstration Project

  7. National Demonstration Project (NDP) These three elements create a system of care where juveniles and their families are treated as individuals.

  8. One point of accountability for all juvenile booking Effective Positive Identification Process (PID) Screening for risk & needs Assessment & diversion referrals Juvenile Assessment Center (JAC)Centralized Intake Screening & Assessment The JAC revolutionized the management of the juvenile justice population in Miami-Dade County

  9. Major Efficiencies • All law enforcement agencies have a central processing location for arrested youth • Youth receive immediate, evidence- based interventions • Diversion happens at the intake stage • (Civil Citation, PAD, JASS, JASP, IDDS) • Reduction in the number of misdemeanor cases referred to court

  10. Police officers are in and out of JAC within approximately 15 minutes Previously took up to 8 hours Savings of Time- Over 800,000 hours of police time (average 6 hours per arrest) Money- Not paying officers to wait for a parent Public Safety- Allows officers to return to the streets to serve the public Improvements and Results

  11. Improvements and Results (cont’d) Provides a facility with a juvenile-specific design and philosophy • Identifies needs and provides assistance, a different mentality than that of the adult system

  12. Total Arrests 3.5% 1.8% 3.9% 58% 11.2% 8.1% 2.9% 3.4% 5.5% 10.2% 8.2% 10.2% 13.3%

  13. 20% Number of Arrests without the Civil Citation Initiative Number of Arrests with the Civil Citation Initiative • The successful completion rate is 84% • Civil citations are responsible for a 20% reduction in arrests since April 2007

  14. Civil Citation Referrals by Ethnicity 95% of Civil citation participants are minorities

  15. Recidivism FY 08-09 (After 1 year) Youth that receive JSD Program services have better outcomes than those who do not

  16. Juvenile Arrests by Ethnicity 41% 57% 65% 67% 62%

  17. Reduced juvenile arrests by 58% (from 16,532 in 1998 to 6,975 in 2010) Recidivism rate of 10% for juveniles completing JSD Programs Reduced juvenile detention population from 300 per day to approximately 100 per day $33 million dollar gross systemic savings each year $20.2 million dollar net savings each year Overview of Major Accomplishments (1998-2010)

  18. Overview of Major Accomplishments (1998-2010) cont’d • One of the lowest commitment rates in the state of Florida • Started the GPS ankle bracelet program for qualifying detention youth • Miami-Dade County Youth Commission in process of being established under the VIP umbrella to provide youth with a unique perspective on county government and an advisory board to the mayor and BCC

  19. National Juvenile Arrests 2001-2009 -7% 2001-2009 -47%
