  Abstract: The Federal Advisory Committee on Juvenile Justice (FACJJ) is an advisory body established by the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act of 1974. FACJJ provides States an opportunity to have direct input into the Federal policy development and budge processes. FACJJ held its first meeting in 2004. The advisory committee’s mandated responsibilities include preparing two annual reports. The first provides advice to the President and Congress about State perspectives on the operation of OJJDP and on Federal legislation pertaining to juvenile justice and delinquency prevention. This first annual report reflects concerns and issues identified by governors and those working on the front lines with juveniles as being the most in need of immediate attention. It offers an overview of the progress that has been made in addressing juvenile justice and delinquency prevention over the past 3 decades and outlines some critical issues facing today’s juvenile justice practitioners and policymakers. The report contains 13 recommendations from FACJJ on steps that need to be taken to improve the juvenile justice system, prevent juvenile delinquency and violence, intervene when juvenile delinquency and violence occur, and provide practitioners with the programs and tools they need to help youth avoid future delinquency and violence.
