The Livingston County Juvenile Court grant is a partnership with the Child and Adolescent Data Lab at the University of Michigan and focuses on data related activities, but also has direct implications for services provided to youth. Specifically, the project helps to centralize critical data (e.g. risk assessments, administrative records) as it relates to juvenile offenders. Using this data, the court will be able to identify which youth are at greatest risk of recidivism and identify where in the system DMC is the greatest problem. Lastly, data collected will also identify which programs (e.g. diversion, juvenile drug treatment court, truancy program, and others) have the largest impact on critical long- term outcomes (e.g. recidivism, high school graduation).
