THE EXTENT OF THE COURT'S JURISDICTION AND THE NATURE OF AN ADJUDICATIVE HEARING ARE COVERED. THE COURT'S PRESENT TRANSITION PHASE IS ALSO DESCRIBED.

THE COURT'S FUTURE SPACE REQUIREMENTS ARE ANALYZED AND A SPECIFIC STATISTICAL SEGMENT ILLUSTRATES KEY AREAS OF THE COURT'S WORKLOAD. THE JUVENILE 'STREET RELEASE' PROGRAM OF THE OMAHA POLICE DIVISION IS OUTLINED IN THE APPENDIX. (AUTHOR ABSTRACT MODIFIED)
