Juvenile Recidivism

The Office of Research develops Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) Recidivism Reports, which provide three-year arrest, conviction, and return to state custody (Division of Juvenile Justice or Division of Adult Institutions) rates for DJJ youth released during a given fiscal year. To learn more about DJJ and their research projects, please visit their website.

Three-year arrest, conviction, and return to state custody rates for DJJ youth released in Fiscal Years 2007-08 through 2010-11 may be found in the appendices of the 2016 Division of Juvenile Justice Recidivism Report.

The 2012 Recidivism Report, which provided recidivism rates for all offenders released from CDCR adult institutions in Fiscal Year 2007-08, also included rates for juveniles released during the same time period (pages 58 – 64) and may be accessed here.
