In Idaho, data sharing between the Idaho Supreme Court, Department of Health and Welfare, and Idaho Department of Juvenile Corrections occurs regarding dual jurisdiction youth. There are committees that focus on these issues as well as formal and informal inter-agency activity at the state level. Statutes and/or court rules exist to facilitate data sharing.
Data sharing and coordination for dual status youth at the local level varies by county in Idaho. Bannock County has several examples of coordination including local committees and both formal and informal agreements, data sharing, and identification of dual status cases through routine procedures at intake.

Court coordination for dual status cases in Bannock County includes consolidation of delinquency and child welfare matters with one judge and joint hearing appearances by probation officer and social worker.
