Annotation: This report describes the youth in Florida's Community Control program during fiscal year 1993-94; the program is similar to probation in that it provides community supervision to juvenile delinquents as an alternative to commitment and placement in a residential program.
Abstract: The program served 33,533 youths during the year; the average length of stay was 8.3 months, a decline from 9.7 months the previous year. The youths were of 81.4 percent males and 19.6 percent females. Sixty percent were white and 38.9 percent were black. The most common and most serious offenses committed by youths in this program were misdemeanors, especially shoplifting. Burglary was the most common felony offense for which community control was used. Among those released from community control, 79.9 percent successfully completed the program, which is down from the 82.1 percent successful completion rate the year before. Statewide, 25.4 percent of the youths released from community control during the first 6 months of 1993 had subsequent referrals in the year following release. More than 19 percent had subsequent adjudications in the year following their release. The combined cost of community control, case management, and intake was $50.6 million for the fiscal year.
