This chapter examines the operations and rationale for registration and community notification laws as they relate to juvenile sex offenders. The first section distinguishes between registration and notification as sex-crime prevention strategies, and explores the assumptions about sex offenders that underlie their being singled out for registration and notification. The second section provides a profile of the treatment of juvenile offenders under different regimes of state notification and registration statutes. The next section contrasts the assumptions about offenders embedded in current registration and notification laws with the understanding of young offenders that informs the policies of most juvenile courts. Then, the chapter's final section discusses appropriate policy toward juvenile sex offenders in state registration and notification systems, and considers the options available to juvenile courts when such systems contradict policies the courts deem to be important.

Keywords:   juvenile sex offenders, policy conflicts, sex-crime prevention, registration and notification, juvenile courts, sex offender treatments
