Youth in Police Custody for Criminal Offenses Per 100,000 Youth | Last Updated 28 Aug 2016

This dataset includes annual counts of youth ages 10-18 taken into police custody for criminal offenses committed during the annual reporting period. All local law enforcement agencies are required by law to report custody (minors) and arrest (adults) data to the Missouri Department of Public Safety. Data is organized by Part I and Part II offenses and accessible through the department’s Uniform Crime Reporting website. Part I offenses are those that are generally of a violent and more serious nature. Part I crimes include homicide, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft and arson. Part II crimes generally are non-violent and include offenses such as vandalism, disorderly conduct and missed curfew and loitering. Custody counts may include a single youth being counted for multiple incidents on different occasions. The per 100,000 youth rate for Youth Taken into Custody for Criminal Offenses is calculated as: (# Total Youth taken into Custody/Total Youth Population for Ages 10-18) x 100,000.
