Abstract: In 1993, the Annie E. Casey Foundation of Baltimore, MD, launched the Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative (JDAI). The project was designed to demonstrate that jurisdictions could reduce their reliance on secure detention without sacrificing public safety. The Initiative is described in Pathways to Juvenile Detention Reform (Pathways), a series of 12 monographs published by the Casey Foundation. Pathways presents a road map for comprehensive reform of the detention system and an overview of the JDAI. About the same time, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) funded a research project by Abt Associates that revealed the deplorable conditions of facilities in which many youths were being held. Study findings were published in the OJJDP Report Conditions of Confinement in Juvenile Detention and Correctional Facilities (1994). Relevant data are also available in Crowding in Juvenile Detention Centers: A Problem-Solving Manual and Crowding in Juvenile Detention Centers: Practitioner Perspectives on What to Do About It. The document provides information about obtaining these and other documents. Notes
