Annotation: This report profiles the work of the Washington State Governor's Juvenile Justice Advisory Committee (GJJAC), lists the projects funded in 1995 and the award amounts, identifies 1995 problems, and presents data pertinent to juvenile justice.
Abstract: The GJJAC was established by Executive Order in 1982. It is responsible for developing and implementing a State plan that sets the priorities for awarding Federal funds and for monitoring the State's compliance with the Federal Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act. This report presents information and data on juvenile offenders, transitional services for juvenile offenders, and alternatives to secure confinement. It also explains how the GJJAC selects projects to fund and lists the projects funded in 1995. Among the data findings are that the number of juveniles held in detention facilities in 1994 increased by 7 percent over the previous year. This increase is more than the population age 10-17 increase for the same time period (2 percent). The average daily population in residential programs has increased by 32 percent in the last 5 1/2 years after a relatively stable daily population in the three preceding years. Although more than half of the juveniles held in facilities were white, African-American youth had the highest per capita rate. 82 tables and 23 graphs
