About This Measure
Information is gathered from police reports entered into the Computer-Assisted Police Report System (CAPRS). Juvenile Suspect: an individual 18 years of age or younger believed to have committed a crime. Juvenile Arrestee: an individual 18 years of age or younger who commits a crime and is cited or booked into a jail. This also includes age-specific offenses that if committed by adults would not be a crime, such as curfew and tobacco violations, alcohol possession and consumption.
