Juvenile Delinquency in Cumberland, PA

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Cumberland 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 619 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Cumberland County. Of that total, 78% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 482 court cases. Another 22% were dependency cases that accounted for 137 of the juvenile cases.

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