Juvenile Crime in Washington, D.C.

December 22, 2003

Abstract

Has Washington, D.C., experienced a significant increase in juvenile violence? Is juvenile violence increasing more than adult violence? If the adult justice system is the answer to Washington's violent crime problem, does this mean that violent crime by adults has been going down? This policy brief examines these issues by reviewing the latest data on crime and violence in the city of Washington and the nation.
