A Conscious Chicagoan’s Guide to Youth Detention and Incarceration

We have received some requests over the past few weeks for more updated information about youth incarceration in Illinois. In response, we decided to put together a publication that would update community members in Chicago about juvenile detention and incarceration (with a particular focus on Cook County). We think of this as a sort of cheat sheet that will provide you with the most recent data that we could access. The publication includes data from 2011 for both the Cook County Juvenile Temporary Detention Center (JTDC) as well as the Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ). We hope that this proves helpful to you. More importantly, we hope that it helps to mobilize you to take action in supporting juvenile justice reform in Illinois.
