Evaluation of Utah Juvenile Court’s Implementation of the Carey Guides
Study Dates: 2011
Study Description: The Utah Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) requested that the Utah Criminal Justice Center (UCJC) study the implementation of the Carey Guides as an additional component of juvenile probation with moderate and high risk juvenile probationers in Utah. This study examines the Carey Guides implementation and the impact of that process on Juvenile Court outcomes such as changes in probation supervision and recidivism. This study does not evaluate the effectiveness of individual Carey Guides, nor the Guides as a whole. This study does, however, evaluate the implementation and use of Carey Guides in Utah as a component of the larger probation supervision process.
