Legislative Guide for Drafting State-Local Programs on Juvenile Delinquency.
Office of Juvenile Delinquency and Youth Development (DHEW), Washington, DC.
These materials are intended to provide suggestions for the development of legislation for programs of delinquency prevention and treatment administered by state and local public agencies. Recommendations for both content and language are offered as aids to planning the improvement, coordination or unification of existing law, or on the drafting of new laws. All suggestions are based on research and study which included: (1) a review of state laws; (2) federal and state judicial decisions; (3) field study in certain selected states; and (4) discussions with many individuals actively engaged in this field. Principles underlying the legislative materials, as well as instructions about how they may best be utilized, are discussed. Throughout the materials, special emphasis is placed on providing services and facilities in the communities in which the children and youth live. (TL)
