Abstract: During the reporting period, 52,727 children were referred to one of the 45 juvenile courts in the State; these children had a total of 72,748 referrals to court that year. Referrals are made for law violations; cases involving abuse, neglect, and custody; and status offenses. Formal dispositions that can be imposed by the courts include true out-of-home, true in-home, true no services, not true, motion to dismiss, and dismiss for certification. There are also informal dispositions: adjust without or with supervision, adjust with no action, transfer to other juvenile court, transfer to other agency, and referral rejected.
