State Options for Supporting Delinquency Prevention: A Working Paper.
Croan, Gerald M.; And Others
A supplement to the related document "Delinquency Prevention: Theories and Strategies," this paper analyzes the options for state agencies (particularly state planning agencies participating in the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration formula grant program) to promote and support program forms recommended in the companion document. It is expected that the recommended delinquency prevention program forms will require experimentation and refinement. Following an introduction, section 2 of the document presents a summary of the related publication. Section 3 considers state planning agency resources, identifies characteristics of the delinquency prevention programs recommended in section 2 that may present particular implementation problems for state planning agencies, and suggests options for deploying state planning agency resources to deal with these problems. As a way of summarizing and linking the options, section 4 presents a possible sequence of work, starting from the early conceptual and organizational stages and proceeding through to the development and evaluation of local prevention programs. Section 5 briefly summarizes the key points of the paper and stresses the need for continuous revision of programs. (Author/JM)
