“Stepping Up Florida County Juvenile Civil Citation Reports 2016” provides reporting of the performance of each county, its school district and its law enforcement agencies with juvenile civil citations, an alternative to arrest for common youth misbehavior.

Stepping Up County Reports show utilization rates, arrest rates, dismissals and state rankings, as well as the Relative Rate Index (arrests based on race) for school districts.

Additionally, our reports show how increasing the use of civil citations to a 75% utilization rate would impact a county, such as the reduction of arrests, and the cost savings that are reinvested into preventing and addressing felonies and serious crimes.
