Abstract
Description
This study resulted from a request by the agency’s director that the Research and Evaluation Unit investigate certain factors associated with revocations to the Department of Youth Services. Administrative concern focused on the seemingly large proportion of revocations deriving from status/placement-type problems rather than criminal violations and their effect on the size of the institutional population. A study proposal was developed which designated for analysis the pertinent variables of reason for revocation, complete history of offenses/violations resulting in commitment, and length of revocation stay. In order to document with detail recent instances of children being returned to the Agency because of inadequate placement, a section presenting four case studies was appended to the statistical analysis. A full discussion of the methodology employed in the study followed.
