Juvenile Delinquency in Berks, PA

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

In 2017, a total of 1187 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Berks County. Of that total, 61% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 720 court cases. Another 39% were dependency cases that accounted for 467 of the juvenile cases.

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