Annotation: This report provides an overview of the work of the divisions and units of the Federal Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP).
Abstract: Established under the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 1974, the OJJDP provides national leadership, coordination, and resources to prevent and respond to juvenile offending and child victimization. OJJDP accomplishes its mission by supporting States, local communities, and tribal jurisdictions in their efforts to develop and implement effective, multidisciplinary prevention and intervention programs and improve the capacity of the juvenile justice system to protect public safety, hold offenders accountable, and provide treatment and rehabilitative services tailored to the needs of individual juveniles and their families. OJJDP sponsors a broad array of research, program, and training initiatives and disseminates accurate, up-to-date information about juvenile justice issues. These activities are conducted by seven organizational components that are profiled in this report. These are the Research and Program Development Division, the Training and Technical Assistance Division, the Special Emphasis Division, the State Relations and Assistance Division, the Concentration of Federal Efforts Program, the Child Protection Division, and the Information Dissemination Unit.
