IDJJ Data and Reports

The Illinois Department of Juvenile Justice (IDJJ) has two goals: make Illinois communities safer for all residents; and foster better life outcomes for youth in the Department’s custody by providing appropriate and effective rehabilitative care. 

In March 2015, the IDJJ unveiled its comprehensive strategic plan focusing on five core principles: right-size, rehabilitate, reintegrate, respect and report. The final principle, report, focuses on enhancing communications and management systems to strengthen operations, improve outcomes, increase public safety, and inform the public.

For decades, IDJJ has struggled with data collection, management and reporting. The issuance of these monthly reports marks a major step forward in the progress of more effectively informing stakeholders and the public with consistent and accurate information about the Department’s operations and outcomes.  The hope is that this data will help facilitate a more robust dialogue about the state of juvenile justice in Illinois. In the end, the goal is that these reports inform and compel action to further Illinois’ juvenile justice reforms.
