Description: All across the country, juvenile justice agencies are judged to be successful or not based on recidivism rates that indicate the extent to which youths commit crimes after receiving juvenile justice services. Because of the importance of this measure, the Council of Juvenile Correctional Administrators (CJCA), with support from the Office of Juvenile Justice Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), has identified three goals related to recidivism measurement: 1 Reduce re-offending; 2 Increase support for evidence-based programs (both proven and promising); and 3 Support the continuous quality improvement of programs and systems of services.
