A Framework for Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. A Technical Assistance Monograph.
This technical assistance monograph is one in a series of three on juvenile justice and delinquency prevention prepared by the Formula Grants and Technical Assistance Division of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). It is designed to provide practical suggestions for developing and implementing programs to reduce juvenile crime and to cultivate partnerships with state and local agencies. The goals of the OJJDP are: to promote delinquency prevention efforts, to foster the use of alternatives to the traditional justice system, and to improve the existing juvenile justice system through encouraging and assisting states and localities in their prevention efforts. Each of the three goal areas is discussed, based on a summary of theory and research. In each area, guidelines are provided for state and local agencies seeking formula grants and technical assistance. The four OJJDP Assessment Centers that contributed to the content of this monograph are listed, along with other agencies that can provide assistance to practitioners in the area of juvenile justice. A discussion of the uses of technical assistance completes the monograph. (MCF)
