Five-Year Trend Tables by Processing Point and County

For detailed information on processing points definitions, data sources, and counting methods, please see the Data Definitions and Technical Notes document.

Raise the Age legislation went into effect October 1, 2018, and changed how cases for youth age 16 at time of crime are processed. Beginning October 1, 2019, these changes also applied to youth age 17 at time of crime. Those charged with misdemeanors are processed as juvenile delinquents (JDs), and those charged with felonies are arraigned in the Youth Part of Superior Court. The majority of these cases are subsequently removed to Family Court or Probation Intake and processed as JDs. JD volumes for the years 2015-2017 include only 7 – 15 year olds. Counts for 2018 include a small number of 16 year olds, and the counts for 2019 include 16 year olds and a small number of 17 year olds. Because of the addition of these age groups, case processing counts increased in 2019, particularly for probation intakes and petition filings.
