Georgia’s Juvenile Data Exchange:
Bringing Data to Justice
Georgia lacks a comprehensive mechanism for the collection of statewide juvenile justice data. As a result, judges and parties in juvenile delinquency matters cannot make informed decisions regarding the youth who appear in our juvenile courts, and youth may not receive a uniform experience of justice throughout the State.
The Juvenile Data Exchange Project (JDEX) brings together committed partners from the Governor’s Office, the Council of Juvenile Court Judges, the Administrative Office of the Courts, and the Department of Juvenile Justice to create a statewide data repository of juvenile justice data. Our goal is to enable informed legal advocacy and judicial decision-making, and to ensure that youth receive substantial justice in every county of the State.

New Search and Sort Options
The filtering and sort options in the latest version of JDEX have been updated. Report results can be auto filtered in order to find results quickly. In order to filter the juvenile’s information, first move the mouse over the category name in the column header. Once you begin typing the filtering criteria into the search box, the results will appear in real time. Search results can also be sorted by ascending or descending order by clicking on the up and down arrows. To reset the report results, select “Reset Filter”.
The process for printing JDEX reports has changed. Select the “Print” link on the top right-hand side of the screen. This will automatically open the print options/settings window. For best printing results, please use Chrome or Firefox.
A print preview of the JDEX report should appear. You can select to print the report in black/white or color by selecting the “More Settings” dropdown menu.
Next to “Options”, check the “Background graphic” box to print the report in color. Uncheck the same box to print the report in black/white.
