Note "Civil citation is widely used in the state of Florida as a promising response for first-time, non-serious juvenile offenders. Law enforcement issue civil citations to qualifying misdemeanants in lieu of arrest and prior to adjudication. Though there is wide variation in the application of civil citation across the state, most programs refer youth to some kind fo services and require the completion of community service or payment of restitution. For those who comply with all requirements, there is no arrest record or further consequences. Those that do not comply, however, are arrested and must proceed with adjudication of the original offense." -- Page 1.
"The current research explores the variation in the application of civil citation programs in Florida, including variation in the proportion of encounters between the police and juveniles and the resulting outcome of an arrest versus the issuing of a civil citation by jurisdiction, offense type, and offender characteristics. The research will also determine the impact, both short- and long-term, on levels of recidivism among youth receiving civil citations, versus those who were arrested. Finally, we provide recommendations for policymakers and practitioners for future use of this program." -- Page 1-2.
