Excerpt
Executive Summary: The disproportionate minority confinement (DMC) mandate of the mandate of the Juvenile Justice an Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act requires states to develop and implement strategies to address an reduce the overrepresentation of minority youth in secure facilities. In an effort to facilitate compliance with the mandate, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) sponsored demonstration projects in five pilot states. In Phase I of OJJDP?s DMC Initiative, each pilot state assessed the extent of DMC in its juvenile justice system. In Phase II, each state designed and implemented strategies to address the disproportionate representation identified in Phase I. The Initiative also included a National Evaluation to document the lessons learned, identify key factors in the success of state and local efforts, and determine the efficacy of different interventions in reducing DMC. At the request of OJJDP, Caliber Associates, in conjunction with state representatives and Portland State University, conducted the National Evaluation, consisting of separate evaluations of each pilot state and one non-pilot state. This report presents findings from the evaluation of the North Carolina DMC demonstration project that began in February 1992 and concluded in the fall of 1994.
