In the 2014-15 and 2015-16 General Appropriations Acts, the Legislature directed the Department to "...conduct a comprehensive statewide review of county-level data, including a gap analysis of services and programs available across all counties in the state, to evaluate the implementation of juvenile justice policies at the county level. As the result of such review, the Department shall prepare a report that includes benchmarking of counties’ performance on factors that demonstrate how a county is supporting the department’s strategic goals of preventing and diverting more youth from entering the juvenile justice system; providing appropriate, less restrictive, community-based sanctions and services; reserving serious sanctions for youth who pose the greatest risk to public safety, and focusing on rehabilitation. The report shall also include recommendations and strategies that can be implemented by the Department or counties to address any identified deficiencies and to assist in developing a statewide, coordinated response across all of Florida’s communities to support the Department's strategic goals."
The Service Continuum Analysis report and its companion interactive web-based report were created to meet these reporting requirements. The report and its companion provide a broad range of information on services available to youth at a county level, service needs, and progress on key reform goals at a county level. This report is best viewed online, as it contains hyperlinks to supplemental material including the interactive data report.
