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

Of that total, 75% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 84 court cases. Another 25% were dependency cases that accounted for 28 of the juvenile cases.
