Juvenile Delinquency in Hamilton, TN

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

In 2016, a total of 2491 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Hamilton County. Of that total, 27% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 675 court cases. Another 40% were dependency cases that accounted for 993 of the juvenile cases.

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