Juvenile Delinquency in Harrison, MO
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Harrison County, juvenile delinquency offenses are on the rise. There are many reasons for the inflation in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Missouri often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of charges, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 134 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Harrison County. Of that total, 22% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 29 court cases. Another 62% were dependency cases that accounted for 83 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Harrison County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Harrison County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
