Juvenile Justice: Building a Safer Future. Florida Department of Juvenile Justice Annual Report, 1996-97.
Florida State Dept. of Juvenile Justice, Tallahassee.
The document begins with a Department of Juvenile Justice overview which lists program priorities and budget information. The department has three priority issues (public safety, partnerships, and accountability) which are covered in detail. Focal areas for addressing public safety include prevention efforts, prevention and diversion grant funds, children-in-need-of-services and families-in-need-of-services, intervention tactics, detention, the interstate compact on juveniles, commitment services, and after-care services. Ways in which partnerships are fostered through district boards and county councils, the Florida Business Partners for Prevention, direct service volunteer coordination, and the Faith Community Network Initiative are also described. The last priority, accountability, in which all agency operations are held responsible for efficient and appropriate operations, is fulfilled by the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board; Office of the Inspector General; quality assurance measures; efforts to build equitable programs, services, and practices; and the Juvenile Justice Information System.
