Juvenile Homicides Rose Amid Overall Crime Decline

Homicide cases in juvenile courts around the U.S. jumped by 35 percent between 2014 and 2018, the Justice Department says in a new report.

The increase is surprising because it happened during a period in which totals in many crime categories were declining.

In fact, a separate report issued last week on juvenile arrest data emphasized that in 2018, law enforcement agencies made the fewest arrests of juveniles in nearly four decades, an estimated 728,280 arrests of youths under 18.

Like the court data, the FBI’s annual compilation of reports from local law enforcement agencies showed that arrests of juveniles for homicide spiked 21 percent between 2014 and 2018.
