Any discrepancies between the program’s data and the information extracted from JJIS are indicated by the provider in the original spreadsheet sent and returned to the identified designee at the Department. Upon receipt of requested corrections, Data Integrity Officers review provider comments and make corrections to JJIS when necessary. Once this step is completed, final spreadsheets with DIO comments on the status of the original changes requested by the provider are returned to the provider (and follow-up conference calls are scheduled as necessary).
Additional research and data can be found on our page under Reports as well as Fast Facts.
Recognizing the differences in our continuum of care from intake to aftercare, the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice has created assessment instruments and case planning tools that fit these specific environments while sharing the same foundational concepts. Assessments currently include the Community PACT (C-PACT) and the Residential PACT (R-PACT), with a Prevention PACT under development. Case planning tools include the Youth Empowered Success Plan and the Residential Performance Plan.
The PACT Profile is an interactive online data report. Data presented here are taken from the PACT Pre-Screen and Full Assessments completed in the State of Florida. Statewide information can be filtered by Region, Judicial Circuit, County, Gender and Race. Topic Views include Risk to Re-offend, Drug and Alcohol use, Mental Health Issues, Motives for Crime, School Family and Social issues and Criminogenic Needs.
The DJJ IRB reviews research proposals that involve DJJ youth (e.g., direct contact with youth, access to individualized youth information) and/or occur within a DJJ program. The IRB then provides recommendations to the Secretary’s designee to accept or reject the research proposal.
For other questions or concerns, please contact the IRB Director at (850) 717-2627 or IRB.Director@djj.state.fl.us.
