Juvenile Delinquency in Barnstable, MA

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

In 2017, a total of 828 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Barnstable County. Of that total, 53% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 442 court cases. Another 20% were dependency cases that accounted for 168 of the juvenile cases.

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