Juvenile Arrest Data Quality in New York State’s Incident Based Reporting System, Final Report 

When an IBR (Incident-Based Reporting) participating agency closes a reported incident with an arrest of a juvenile, a release status is reported for each arrestee. The release status provides information on what type of police action was taken against the arrestee after he/she was identified as the offender. 

New York State IBR has three release statuses: Diverted to Counseling/Treatment Program, Handled within the Department, and Referred to Criminal Court, Juvenile/Family Court or Probation Intake.  

The most recent info released in 2011 gives just an idea of what the counseling or treatment program’s load was like. Also, 184 of these were categorized as “violent crimes”, with no info on the sentence breakdown.
