Footers

  1. The Commission's study included 386 parole files, but the committing county could only be identified in 370 counties. Proportional representation is calculated against the 370 files with attributed counties.
  2. The number of total annual revocation hearings used (1,100) was obtained by averaging the revocation hearings reported in the Prisoner Review Board's most recent annual reports (FY04-FY09). The actual number of hearings should be lower, due to the trend of declining DJJ committments as well as the reforms outlined in this report (e.g. implementation of youth-appropriate parole conditions, expansion of the Aftercare Specialist position, and increased use of graduated sanctions prior to revocation proceedings), all of which should significantly reduce revocation proceedings.
  3. This column represents the total number of youth currently incarcerated in DJJ due to both technical violations and new charges.
