Annotation: This report contains projections that provide an overview of the Kansas juvenile correctional population from fiscal year 2008 to fiscal year 2017 and are based on data extracted from the Kansas Juvenile Justice Authority (JJA) Juvenile Justice Information System (JJIS) database.
Abstract: The overall juvenile correctional facility population in Kansas is forecast to increase by 8.8 percent or 40 offenders during the next 10 years, growing from 454 juvenile offenders at the end of fiscal year (FY) 2008 to 494 juvenile offenders at the end of fiscal year (FY) 2017. The projected male population over the 10-year forecast period is expected to increase by 37 males, while the female population is projected to remain relatively constant over the next 10 years. As projected, the future juvenile offender population subject to confinement will consist of 72 percent violent and serious offenders by the end of FY 2017. Chronic offenders will make up approximately 22 percent and conditional release violators will make up 6 percent of the juvenile offender population by the end of FY 2017. The projected Juvenile Justice Authority (JJA) confined juvenile offender population reflects the combination of the placement matrix and current practices over the next 10 years (FY 2008 to FY 2017). The projected population growth of Kansas can be attributed to longer lengths of sentences set forth by the placement matrix for serious offenses. Tables and figures
