Sample text

For the index crimes and for all other offenses, the UCR reports detailed information on arrests, which is of significant concern to students of delinquency. With these caveats taken into consideration, it is useful to examine arrest data as one measure of the extent of delinquency in the United States today. 288 million juveniles were arrested in 2010 (Federal Bureau of Investigation 2010a:table 38). The definition of juveniles in this figure is anyone under eighteen. The decline in juvenile arrests has been evident from the mid-1990s until now.

This first delinquency law, known as “An Act for the Treatment and Control of Dependent, Neglected, and Delinquent Children” (Tanenhaus 2002:42), established the age of sixteen as the jurisdictional age of the juvenile court, but that age was later raised to seventeen for boys and eighteen for girls (Dohrn 2002:271). This meant that youths under these ages were referred to the juvenile court for handling. It should be noted that Denver, Colorado, also had a functioning juvenile court at this time, led by the efforts of Judge Ben Lindsey, but there was not a specific law establishing it as a separate juvenile court until after the passage of the juvenile delinquency law in Illinois (Dohrn 2002:272–273).
