Juvenile Court Reminder Project (2008)

"Over the years, Juvenile Court has called juveniles/parents scheduled on the next day’s arraignment calendars to remind them of their court date. These calendars included delinquency matters as well as petty misdemeanor and CHIPS issues of truancy and runaway cases. During lean economic times, the question becomes; does using personnel to call to remind litigants of their appearances make economic sense? In fact, at different times, this service has been cancelled when staffing has been limited. This study seeks to measure the effectiveness of the Juvenile Court arraignment calendar reminder calling for increasing the rates of appearance at arraignment hearings."
