Youth Justice System Survey Poll

GBA Strategies administered this survey of 1,000 adults nationwide between September 27th and October 2nd, 2011.

Key findings include:
- By a margin of 78 – 15 percent, the public overwhelming wants the focus of the juvenile justice system to be on prevention and rehabilitation, rather than incarceration and punishment;

-A majority of U.S. adults (56 percent) think that youth facilities are more appropriate to hold juveniles convicted of crimes than adult prisons;

- People overwhelmingly trust judges (81 percent), not prosecutors (12 percent), to determine if and when a juvenile should be tried as an adult;

- Nearly two-thirds of the public favors setting a minimum age at which a young person can be prosecuted in adult court.
