Disproportionate Minority Contact

Disproportionate Minority Contact statistics indicate that in Missouri black children are more likely than white children to have Referrals, Secure Detention, Petitions, Secure Confinement and Certification. In addition, black children in Missouri are less likely than their white counterparts to have their cases result in Diversion, Adjudication and Supervision. When available, the statistics are similar in Boone County, demonstrating that black youth have disproportionate contact with the Juvenile Justice system compared to white youth.
