Juvenile Probation Officer Workload and Caseload Study: Alaska Division of Juvenile JusticeRosay, André B.; Begich, Thomas S. (University of Alaska Anchorage Justice Center, 2010-04-01)This report describes results of a study to measure and analyze the workload and caseload of Juvenile Probation Officers (JPOs) within the Alaska Division of Juvenile Justice. More specifically, this study assessed the resources needed in both rural and urban Alaska to adequately meet minimum probation standards, to continue the development and enhancement of system improvements, and to fully implement the restorative justice field probation service delivery model.
Evaluation of a JAIBG-Funded Project: Voice and Location Telephone Monitoring of JuvenilesSchafer, N. E.; Martin, Pamela (Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage, 2001-03)Direct supervision of juvenile probationers is seldom possible in many communities in Alaska due to their remoteness, so alternative supervision strategies are desirable. Electronic monitoring or voice recognition systems can substitute for institutionalization or face-to-face supervision by a probation officer. This report describes and evaluates the use of a voice and location telephone monitoring system for the supervision of juvenile probationers throught the Mat-Su Youth Corrections Office in Palmer. In practice, VALUE — Voice And Location Update Evaluation — was used primarily as a transitional tool for clients "stepping down" from traditional electronic monitoring to release from supervision.
Quantitative Analysis of Disparities in Juvenile Delinquency Referrals to the Fairbanks North Star Borough, FY2005-06Snodgrass, G. Matthew; Rosay, André B. (University of Alaska Anchorage Justice Center, 2007-10)Minority youths in the Fairbanks North Star Borough are referred to the Alaska Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) for delinquent behavior at rates much higher than white youths.This report describes disproportionate minority contact with the Alaska juvenile justice system for youths referred to the Fairbanks office of the Division of Juvenile Justice during fiscal years 2005 and 2006 (July 1, 2004, to June 30, 2006). Possible sources of disproportionate minority contact are subsequently narrowed by examining the impact of race and ethnicity, gender, type of referral, and geography. By developing a detailed understanding of the scope of disproportionate minority contact, we become much better prepared to identify its causes and to develop evidence-based solutions.
