Staff coded each site with a process evaluation or pre-evaluation from this phase of work (15 programs total, 4 juvenile sites and 11 adult sites) as to whether the program met (or mostly met) minimum guidelines for each Component or Strategy. Overall, sites ranged from meeting 2 to 9 of the 10 Key Components, with an average score of 4.9. The juvenile sites had an average score of 5.75 and the adult sites had an average score of 4.6. Of the 10 Key Components, none of the sites met the minimum criteria for Key Component #3 (early identification of eligible participants and rapid entry into the program) while 12 programs met the minimum criteria for Key Component #7 (ongoing judicial interaction). Juvenile sites were also coded on the degree to which they met the 16 Juvenile Strategies. The four juvenile sites ranged from meeting 9 to 15 of the juvenile strategies. Of the 16 Juvenile Strategies, 2 to 4 of the sites adequately met each one (that is, at least half of the sites met each of the strategies).
