Section 2 - Analysis of Juvenile Crime Problems and Juvenile Justice Needs

There have been no changes to the analysis of juvenile crime problems in Illinois since submission of the FFY 2009 application. The SAG anticipates an early 2010 release of the Juvenile Justice System and Risk Factor Data annual report for 2007 calendar year data. Preliminary data has been made available to the SAG in the past month; however, the data is incomplete and not sufficient to update the current analysis. However, a more in-depth analysis of gender-specific issues was completed in May 2009. The SAG commissioned a study to examine this issue. In May 2009, the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority (ICJIA) released Examining At-Risk and Delinquent Girls in Illinois. The information presented below is from that report.
