Definitions: Juvenile arrest data includes the arrests of 17-year-olds, who in Wisconsin are considered adults for purposes of prosecution. For crime reporting purposes, Wisconsin includes arrests of 17-year-olds with juvenile arrests, to comply with federal requirements that require uniform crime reporting policies across states. These data may have been influenced by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, starting in 2020.

Data Source: Some information on juvenile arrests is available on the Wisconsin Department of Justice's website. Arrest figures change slightly over time as local agencies update or correct their information.
