DMC as defined in the Juvenile Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act, exists when “the proportion of juveniles detained or confined in secure detention facilities, secure correctional facilities, jails, and lockups who are members of minority groups exceeds the proportion such groups represent in the general population.” Accordingly, if a state finds that minority juveniles disproportionately come in contact with the juvenile justice system, the state is responsible for developing and implementing strategies to address this issue.
