  DECEMBER 2006 Juvenile OffenderProfile Study Conducted by: The Justice Education Center, Inc .  Juvenile OffenderProfile Study DECEMBER 2006 Conducted by:The Justice Education Center, Inc.  September, 2006Dear Reader,Since its establishment in 1976, The Justice Education Center has conducted extensive offenderprofile, court disposition and longitudinal studies on the juvenile and adult offender populations inConnecticut. In 2005, leaders on the Connecticut General Assembly requested The Justice Education Center(TJEC) to perform a policy analysis of the State’s juvenile offender population to inform program andpolicy analysis. The Center developed a methodology to conduct a detailed analysis of the differences andsimilarities of Connecticut juveniles who are currently incarcerated, in the community, or are onprobation or parole — obtaining data for the approximately 14,000 juvenile offenders who werereferred to Superior Court, Juvenile Matters in 2004. Of those 14,000, 2,191 juveniles wereidentified as the most serious juvenile offenders.While analysis can continue in the coming months on the larger juvenile population, this studyclosely examines only the 2,191 juveniles in Connecticut who were referred to juvenile court in2004 and who received the most serious dispositions — juveniles who consume a significant portionof the financial and human resources of the juvenile justice system. This study could not have been possible without the full cooperation and support of theCommissioner of the Department of Children and Families, Darlene Dunbar, the Commissioner ofCorrection, Theresa Lantz, the Chief Court Administrator, the Honorable William Lavery, and theirstaffs. The Center wishes to extend its deepest gratitude to Eleanor Lyon, Ph.D., Director, Institute forViolence Prevention and Reduction, University of Connecticut School of Social Work, for directingthe Juvenile Offender Profile Study. The Center also gratefully acknowledges the efforts of IvanKuzyk, research consultant, and Janet Shute, The Center’s writer. We hope that the information contained within this report will help inform the planning process asthe General Assembly moves forward on a range of juvenile justice issues in the coming months. Sincerely,Sherry HallerExecutive DirectorThe Justice Education Center, Inc.  JUVENILE OFFENDER PROFILE STUDY1 Table of Contents I.Background . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 2Context. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 2Dispositional Categories. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 3 II.Data Sources . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 4 III.Key Questions and Research Design . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 5 IV.Findings . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6Key Findings . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 6Findings Relevant to Program Development. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 9Implications of Findings. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 11Tables. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 12 V.Future Analysis . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 28 VI.Glossary of Terms . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 30 VII.Appendix A . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 35
