A provision is added to the section concerning the use of juvenile delinquency data for research purposes that any research generated by that data must be in aggregate form.

The district attorney or his or her designee is no longer subject to any criminal or civil penalties for his or her compliance with the reporting obligations of the statute.

The division of criminal justice is no longer required to release data related to juvenile delinquency to independent entities for research purposes.
