Date of dataset: 9/30/2018 Source: PRISM (Probation Record Information System Management) PO-170 Report Notes: To ensure confidentiality and to protect the identities of individuals on probation, the ages of some individuals in the dataset have been withheld, and marked “N/A”. This is done to avoid possible re-identification through the available demographic information, or stigmatization of a group when they make a substantial percent of a designated population. Number of records with ages withheld: 0 The Alameda County Probation Department (ACPD) collects information on all juveniles referred to the department and records this in PRISM (Probation Record Information System Management). Several reports are built into the PRISM system that allow ACPD staff to extract data for specified time periods. This dataset is derived from the PRISM PO-170 report – the Juvenile Detentions Data Extract. This report contains individual-level information for all youth detained on the date specified. To create this dataset, the report was de-identified and edited to include the most pertinent information.
