More than One-Quarter (26.1%) of Offenders Admitted to Community Supervision
are Considered Youthful Offenders (Under 24)

Offenders on community supervision are generally considered Youthful Offenders if they are under the age of 24. Youthful Offenders are often assigned to Correctional Probation Senior Officers because supervising a youthful offender is generally more difficult than supervising older offenders and requires more experience on the part of a officer to address the broader range of problems that they present. For example, Youthful Offenders often lack job skills and have more substance abuse problems than other offenders, requiring more contact by the officer with school officials, counselors, and family members than the average offender. More than one-quarter (26.1%) of those admitted to community supervision in FY 2011-12 were under the age of 24.

Admissions of Offenders Under Age 24 Compared Over Five Years
Admissions of Offenders Under Age 24 - FY 07-08 = 30,365 and decrease to FY 08-09 = 28,945 and decrease to FY 09-10 = 26,982 and decrease to FY 10-11 = 25,518 and decrease to FY 11-12 = 23,755
