This project will centralize real-time juvenile probation data including demographics, charges, risk and needs assessments, programs and probation contacts as it relates to youth moving through arrest, formal (probation, placement and transfer) and informal (diversion and consent) processing of the juvenile court. In addition to the efficiencies of mobile probation case files, with the assistance of a court administration intern and an independent evaluator from a local University, the electronic client management system will enable the court to regularly and fully describe the demographics, risk levels, and treatment needs of the juvenile court population; determine where in the system Racial and Ethnic Disparity (RED) is the greatest problem; identify gaps in services; and identify which services (e.g. MST, juvenile drug treatment court, skill-building activities) have the greatest outcomes for youth of color.
