A review of Indiana's efforts to remove status offenders from detention and correctional facilities as required by the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974 revealed that Indiana was experiencing several problems. These problems were: effective monitoring systems have not been established to determine whether deinstitutionalization has been or will be achieved, State laws and practices frequently conflict with the act's deinstitutionalization mandate, and appropriate alternatives to incarceration have not been developed. The director of the State planning agency believed that the means established by the State for monitoring facilities was providing compenhensive and useful data. He also noted that proposed revisions to the Indiana Juvenile Code have been introduced in the legislature.
