Community Facility Placement
All clients in JR start at an institution. After they have spent 10% or 30 days of their sentence in an institution, most clients can be considered for placement in a community facility. DCYF tracks the disparity ratio of community facility placement. A ratio of 1.0 indicates that clients of that race/ethnicity are placed in community facilities at the same rate that they are placed in JR. A ratio above 1 indicates that group is placed at a higher frequency, and a ratio below 1 indicates that they are placed at a lower rate than their overall population in JR.
