Juvenile & Family Division Substantiated Referrals

Number of substantiated referrals to the Missouri Juvenile & Family Division for law or status offenses. Law offenses include all criminal violations except infractions, municipal ordinances, and violation of court order offenses. Infractions, municipal ordinances, and violations of court orders are considered status offenses as of 2013. Other common status offenses include behavior injurious to self/others, habitually absent from home, truancy, and being beyond parental control. This measure includes substantiated referrals only. The percent indicates the number of substantiated referrals divided by the number of referrals. Some referrals are both law and status offenses; therefore, "total law or status offenses" may not be the sum of law and status offenses. Subtantiated law and/or status offenses are a better measure of actual youth interaction with the juvenile justice system, whereas referrals may serve as a proxy for public views on youth in the community.
