Cost Savings Analysis

In 2008, the Miami-Dade County Office of Management and Budget (OMB), formerly the Office of Strategic Business Management, was engaged by the Miami-Dade County Juvenile Services Department (JSD) to conduct a cost analysis of its services. 


OMB’s best estimate is that JSD’s financial impact on the local juvenile justice community is a gross annual savings of $33 million and a net annual savings of $20.3 million. This best estimate is based on OMB’s estimate that, had JSD not been created in 1998, juvenile arrests would only have declined by 7%, rather than the actual 41 percent between 1998-2007, resulting in higher caseloads and costs for numerous agencies.
