Juvenile Arrests 2010

Publication year: 2013  |  Cataloged on: Feb 27, 2019

This bulletin authored by the National Center for Juvenile Justice and published by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention presents 2010 statistics on juvenile arrests. U.S. law enforcement agencies made more than 1.6 million arrests of persons younger than 18 years old, nine percent fewer than in 2009. Juvenile arrests for Violent Crime Index offenses--murder, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault-- declined 12% between 2009 and 2010, reaching its lowest level since at least 1980. Between 1994, when the Violent Crime Index arrest rates for juveniles hit a historic high, and 2010, the rate fell 55% to its lowest level in three decades. Additionally, arrest rates for nearly every offense category for both male and female and white and minority youth were down in 2010.
