In 2014, the Arkansas Juvenile Assessment and Treatment Center reported the most violence on campus in at least six years, according to state data. Last year, the center reported 832 acts of violence — assaults, fights and self harm, a 25 percent increase from the 664 reported in 2013. Self harm and fights increased. Assaults declined slightly but remained high compared with previous years. GRAPHIC BY NIKKI DAWES

The state’s largest youth lockup reported more violence last year than in any of the previous six years.
