Correction to Alaska Judicial Council Report

Correction to Alaska Judicial Council Report

"Correction to Alaska Judicial Council Report" by Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage. Alaska Justice Forum 29(2): 11 (Summer 2012). The Alaska Judicial Council has issued a correction to the report Does the YLS/CMI Help to Prevent Recidivism discussed in the Winter/Spring 2012 of the Alaska Justice Forum.

The Alaska Justice Forum article describing the August 2011 Alaska Judicial Council report, Does the YLS/CMI Help to Predict Recividism?, appeared in the Winter/Spring 2012, Vol. 28, No. 4/Vol. 29, No. 1 issue. The article, "Predicting Recidivism for Alaska Youth: An Evaluation of the YLS/CMI Survey," referred to Alaska Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) probation officers and overrides on scores from the YLS/CMI. The Alaska Judicial Council has issued a correction to the report. A re-analysis of the data about DJJ probation officer overrides showed that the overrides were not disproportionately high. The report has been revised, with new tables and text to reflect the changed findings. The revised version of the report is available at the Judicial Council's website, http://www.ajc.state.ak.us/reports/djjreport8-11.pdf.
