Rearrest of Urban Youth in America

Rearrest of Urban Youth in America

The excessive, disproportionate number on African American and minorities rearrest in urban cities have consistently been worrisome. The high juvenile delinquency rearrest rate is a problem in Fulton County, Georgia, which is of significant concern. The juvenile justice system has gained acceptance to address and reduce youth offenders' high rearrest rates (Olateru-Olagbegi, 2020). However, there is a lack of research regarding African American male adults and juvenile justice probationers' perceptions of rearrests' factors. A qualitative study that explored and examined the phenomenon and factors that contribute to juvenile rearrest or recidivism through the perceptions of African American male adults who were previously juvenile delinquents and current young probation officers conducting the interview is this author. Ecological systems theory was in use as the theoretical foundation for guiding this research. This qualitative study showed that the juvenile system's current probation guidelines in Fulton County, Georgia, are unsuccessful. Results indicated that reliable factors for juvenile delinquency rearrest or recidivism include (a) a lack of juvenile and parent accountability; (b) environment; (c) peers; and (d) family dynamics. The juvenile justice system, human services professionals, voluntary organization leaders in the field, and policymakers could use findings from the study to advocate for developing programs and policies that will reduce juvenile delinquency recidivism (Olateru-Olagbegi, 2020).I know Koya Olateru-Olagbegi for over thirty years as a tennis Hall of Famer and a business owner; the study into the African American youth and minorities rearrest is a must read for educational purpose and policy decision implementation.
