Target #1: Reduce the rate of recidivism for juveniles released from Division of Juvenile Justice Probation
FFY2010-FFY2018 Recidivism Rate for Juveniles Released from Division of Juvenile Justice Probation
Analysis of results and challenges: This measure examines reoffense rates for juveniles who received probation supervision while either remaining at home or in a nonsecure custodial placement. These youths typically have committed less serious offenses and have demonstrated less chronic criminal behavior than youth who have been committed to a juvenile treatment facility.
Research has identified the factors that result in delinquent behavior. These are a history of offenses and involvement in the juvenile justice system, and challenges in these life areas: family circumstances/parenting; education/employment; peer relations; substance abuse; leisure/recreation; personality/behavior; and attitudes/orientation. The division has embarked on a number of efforts to improve our understanding of these factors and to reduce the risks and needs that result in juvenile recidivism.
Target #2: Cost per day for probation services based on average daily population
FY2012-FY2018 Cost per Day for Probation Services Based on Average Daily Population
Analysis of results and challenges: The cost to provide probation services to a youth in Alaska has remained fairly stable over the past three years. Changes in the number of youth referred to the division from year to year is the largest factor in creating fluctuations in the cost per day for probation services. The Division continues to build strong community partnerships in urban and rural Alaska, collaborate with behavioral health providers for youth with complex needs, increase work with education partners, and strengthen work with families. There is a slight increase in probation services due to this expanded community outreach.
Costs to provide probation services vary slightly depending on the regions in which these services are provided. For example, probation services in regions with many rural communities generally are more expensive than those in urban regions because of increased costs for travel, supplies, and other resources.
