Race as a Factor in Juvenile Arrests
Howard Snyder, Carl Pope
Analyzes statistics from the FBI's National Incident-Based Reporting System for evidence of racial bias in police arrests of juveniles for violent crimes. Focuses on a somewhat neglected area of research, i.e., the role that race plays in police decisionmaking. It compares arrest probabilities of white and nonwhite juveniles for violent crimes and finds no direct evidence that an offender's race affects police decisions to take juveniles into custody in such incidents.
