Overview

Juvenile Justice: Theory, Systems, and Organization provides a unique approach to understanding the juvenile justice system. It not only explains the system as it is today, but also attempts to explain how the juvenile justice practitioner, whether he or she is a street level bureaucrat, supervisor, or executive, can make the system work for the benefit of the youth. This volume carefully looks at the juvenile justice system as it is and in carefully constructed language explains the dynamics of the system. However, it is not enough to understand the juvenile justice system as if it stands alone, but one must understand that it is influenced by other subsystems with which it interacts.

In the classroom, artificial divisions are made to facilitate discussions. This is a valuable approach, but hardly reflects the real world. This book attempts not only to educate the reader on the juvenile justice system, but also on how to bring the system together in order to serve the child and the community.

Read an Excerpt

This book has been in progress for a long time and could not have been completed without a great deal of help and encouragement. It is our firm belief that students need to have a reasonably good grasp on how the juvenile justice system works and how it interfaces with other institutions in the community. Without that knowledge, the effective management of resources and programs is even more difficult. As a consequence, the book takes a different approach. That is, it is a blend of information about management and information about the juvenile justice system.

In the classroom we make artificial divisions and distinctions in order to facilitate discussion. This is a valuable approach, but hardly reflects the real world where everything depends on nearly everything else. Thus, we have attempted to not only educate the reader on the juvenile system, but also on how to bring the system together in order to serve the child and the community. This text is based on our combined field experience, education, training of juvenile justice practitioners, research, and teaching of juvenile justice during our careers. Our hope is that it will provide students with the theoretical foundation necessary to work with youth and also allow them to understand the interdependence between juvenile justice organizations and community institutions. ORGANIZATION OF THE TEXT

Clearly juvenile crime is an issue that should concern us all. In addition, we must begin to develop programs and approaches to juvenile crime that will serve all children and protect the taxpayer. However, we cannot rely entirely upon repression and a "lock-'em up" approach. If we are going to be successful in our fightto reduce juvenile crime, we must take a different look at the juvenile system, recast its function, and gain a clearer understanding of how the system works.

Unfortunately, most texts on juvenile justice are nothing more than books .4n juvenile delinquency. That is fine as far as that goes, but few have made an attempt to integrate criminological theory and organizational theory in an attempt to explain the system. This is necessary because the juvenile justice system does not exist in a vacuum; it is a part of, and depends upon, the other social systems of which it is a subpart. However ambitious the task, it is necessary that we attempt to understand the juvenile justice system in light of how theory informs programs, how organizations work, and its dependency upon the legal subsystem.

One special feature of the book is that we attempt to use a spiraling approach. That is, we introduce a concept or idea at one point, perhaps in depth or briefly, and then return to it later on. For example, Chapter 4 is devoted to gangs. We return to the subject of gangs in Chapter 12. We talk about groups in Chapter 10 and in Chapter 12. We hope this approach will serve not only as learning reinforcement, but will reinforce the notion that juvenile justice is greatly affected by the environment and what goes on in the world as a whole.

Part I looks at delinquency in the twenty-first century. The scope and depth of the problem is probed in order to give the student an understanding of the real problem. Part II examines the system itself. The police, courts, the process of diversion, and community and institutions are discussed with a view towards how each works with the others. Part III is unique, in that the student is acquainted with the need to manage the juvenile justice system in order to maximize services to youth. Finally, Part IV looks at the executive in juvenile justice and how he or she can influence the system and related systems to serve the community and the youth. The final chapter is a discussion of the future of juvenile justice where we peer into our crystal ball and attempt to predict what the future holds for juvenile justice.

Preface

This book has been in progress for a long time and could not have been completed without a great deal of help and encouragement. It is our firm belief that students need to have a reasonably good grasp on how the juvenile justice system works and how it interfaces with other institutions in the community. Without that knowledge, the effective management of resources and programs is even more difficult. As a consequence, the book takes a different approach. That is, it is a blend of information about management and information about the juvenile justice system.

In the classroom we make artificial divisions and distinctions in order to facilitate discussion. This is a valuable approach, but hardly reflects the real world where everything depends on nearly everything else.

ORGANIZATION OF THE TEXT

Clearly juvenile crime is an issue that should concern us all. In addition, we must begin to develop programs and approaches to juvenile crime that will serve all children and protect the taxpayer. However, we cannot rely entirely upon repression and a "lock-'em up" approach. If we are going to be successful in our fight to reduce juvenile crime, we must take a different look at the juvenile system, recast its function, and gain a clearer understanding of how the system works.

Unfortunately, most texts on juvenile justice are nothing more than books .4n juvenile delinquency. That is fine as far as that goes, but few have made an attempt to integrate criminological theory and organizational theory in an attempt to explain the system. This is necessary because the juvenile justice system does not exist in a vacuum; it is a part of, and depends upon, the other social systems of which it is a subpart. However ambitious the task, it is necessary that we attempt to understand the juvenile justice system in light of how theory informs programs, how organizations work, and its dependency upon the legal subsystem.

For example, Chapter 4 is devoted to gangs. We return to the subject of gangs in Chapter 12. We talk about groups in Chapter 10 and in Chapter 12.
