How to determine Disposition 2 and 5 for B1 by Offense.

 

The dispositions will be determined by working backward from ReturnC, using ReturnC, ReturnB1 and ReturnB2.  The total in column 4 of ReturnC (Total Persons Charged) is the total by Offense of all arrests on ReturnB2 plus ONLY those arrests on ReturnB1 that are Disposition 2 (Referred to Juvenile Court) and/or Disposition 5 (Referred to Criminal or Adult Court).  Column 8 on ReturnC (Referred to Juvenile Court Jurisdiction) is actually the number of ReturnB1 Arrests that are Disposition 2 by Offense. Use the numbers on ReturnC in columns 4 and 8, and the Totals on ReturnB2 to calculate the Disposition 2 and 5 figures as in the following example:

 For Offense 180 Drug Abuse Violations, you have the following figures:

 ReturnB1 total (Male and Female added together)          2

ReturnB2 total (Male and Female added together)           3

ReturnC  column 4 (Total Persons Charged)                     5

ReturnC  column 8 (Referred to Juvenile Court)              1

 

We know that ReturnC column 8 will become Disposition 2 for this Offense on ReturnB1.

To determine the number of Disposition 5 for this Offense on ReturnB1, subtract the ReturnB2 total from the number on ReturnC  in column 4.

            ReturnC column 4                5

            ReturnB2 total                  -  3

                                                          2     Difference between ReturnB2 and ReturnC

Subtract the number in ReturnC, column 8 (the Disposition 2 figure) from the result to determine the number of Disposition 5.

            Difference between ReturnB2 and ReturnC            2

            ReturnC column8 (Disposition 2)                        - 1

                                                                                        1                Disposition 5 for this Offense

Therefore for this example, the numbers for Disposition 2 and 5 for ReturnB1 Offense 180 is 1 each. Since the total for the Offense on ReturnB1 is 2, no other dispositions need to be entered.  If however, the total on ReturnB1 was higher than the sum of the Disposition 2 and 5 just calculated, the remainder must be distributed among the remaining Dispositions (1, 3 and 4).  Refer to the figures you entered on ReturnB1 for each of these dispositions, as you assign counts for each Offense.

Another example:

Offense 080 Other Assaults

ReturnB1 total (Male and Female added together)           6

ReturnB2 total (Male and Female added together)         15

ReturnC  column 4 (Total Persons Charged)                   19

ReturnC  column 8 (Referred to Juvenile Court)              1

          

To determine the number of Disposition 5 for this Offense on ReturnB1, subtract the ReturnB2 total from the number on ReturnC  in column 4.

            ReturnC column 4                19

            ReturnB2 total                  -  15

                                                          4          Difference between ReturnB2 and ReturnC           

 

Subtract the number in ReturnC, column 8 (the Disposition 2 figure) from the result to determine the number of Disposition 5.

            Difference between ReturnB2 and ReturnC            4

            ReturnC column8 (Disposition 2)                        - 1

                                                                                        3        Disposition 5 for this Offense

 

The remaining 2 counts for this Offense on ReturnB1 can be distributed among Dispositions 1, 3, or 4 as you choose.   For this example, the Police Disposition of Juveniles on the bottom of ReturnB1 has the following entries:

Total                            12

1. Handled within Department and released                 1

2. Referred to Juvenile Court                                       2

3. Referred to welfare agency                                      2

4. Referred to other police agency                               3

5  Referred to criminal or adult court                            4

 

The remaining 2 Juveniles can be assigned as 1 in Disposition 1 (using up that category for the rest of the form) and 1 in Disposition 3 (leaving 1 more for the rest of the form).  In the end, you should have assigned all Juvenile Arrests to Dispositions 1 through 5.
