This study was undertaken in order to develop information that could be used to assess the feasibility of Nebraska compliance with federal guidelines under the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act for removing juveniles from jails and lockups for adults. Information derived from existing literature, official data on juveniles in Nebraska jails, data generated from a study of existing alternative detention facilities, and a survey of sheriffs was used. In addition, a policy analysis of Nebraska laws and proposed changes in federal JJDPA law was undertaken.
