  • Courtney A. Waid North Dakota State University

Abstract

The problem of racial disproportionality in the juvenile justice system has led to much discussion among researchers and policy makers alike. This discussion has generated a critical question: What are the sources of this disproportionality? Many researchers and juvenile justice policy commentators note that police interactions with youth are important to understanding Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC). This research note details the history of the DMC initiative in the United States and outlines a plan for assessment of the issue in Cass County, North Dakota.
