Juvenile Delinquency in Kauai, HI

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Kauai County, juvenile delinquency crimes are on the rise. There are many reasons for the increase in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Hawaii often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of offenses, and other family matters.

In 2017, a total of 325 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Kauai County. Of that total, 55% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 178 court cases. Another 0% were dependency cases that accounted for 0 of the juvenile cases.

A lot of counties, including, Kauai County, are focusing on family health and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Kauai County juvenile delinquency statistics will show whether or not this approach is working.
