Juvenile Delinquency in Pacific, WA
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Pacific County, juvenile delinquency offenses are on the rise. There are many reasons for the inflation in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Washington often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of charges, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 71 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Pacific County. Of that total, 70% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 50 court cases. Another 0% were dependency cases that accounted for 0 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Pacific County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Pacific County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
