It is difficult to determine how many victims of juvenile crime will request this information since there is no historical data on which to base an estimate. Based on the current flow of cases into the juvenile justice system it is estimated that 6,000 requests may be made to the Department of Juvenile Justice. Thus, the addition of six full-time equivalent workers would produce the necessary manpower to resolve four cases per worker day. Given the detailed nature of this informational task, four cases per worker day is a reasonable standard.
