In 1997, a total of 35 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Cumberland County. Of that total, 57% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 20 court cases. Another 0% were dependency cases that accounted for 0 of the juvenile cases.
