Minority juveniles in Michigan (and nationwide) are more likely to enter the juvenile justice system than the youth population as a whole, and they are over-represented at nearly every point of contact within the system. Click on the links below to see statewide and county data on juvenile arrests and other contact points by racial background and the disposition of the cases from 2008-2016. Counties voluntarily provided the data, so not every county is listed. The data are broken down by race and ethnicity. For a more detailed report on juvenile crime in Michigan, click here.
