What Factors Drive Disproportionate Minority Contact in the Juvenile Justice System?
Thinking About Corrections


A report funded by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention highlights a delinquency study from three (3) metropolitan areas that examines disproportionate minority contact and the impact it may have on decision making by police and courts. The Program of Research on the Causes and Correlates of Delinquency produced this report in its ongoing mission to "improve the understanding of serious delinquency, violence, and drug use by examining how youth develop within the context of family, school, peers, and community."
