Implementing Comprehensive Juvenile Justice System Improvement in Hawaii


The Crime and Justice Institute (CJI)

Abstract

Hawaii’s juvenile justice system needed to change. Three out of four youths released from the Hawaii Youth Correctional Facility (HYCF) were returning to the facility within three years. To those unfamiliar with juvenile justice research, this was surprising given the profile of youth at HYCF. With a high proportion of youth at HYCF for misdemeanor offenses and little prior history of court involvement, why were so many coming back into the system? Considering the cost of placing youth in this facility is almost $200,000 per bed per year, in-state leaders recognized the need for change.
