Alabama Juvenile Arrests

The Caruthers Institute conducted the study “Arrests for Common Youth Misbehavior in Alabama”, which reveals the number of youth arrested for minor infractions that in previous days resulted in a trip to the principal’s office or a call to parents.  Additionally, the study shows the impact if Alabama were to adopt juvenile civil citations, a data-supported alternative to arrests for common youth misbehavior.
