Abstract: The responsibilities of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) are twofold: to address the needs of youth who have come into contact with the juvenile justice system, and to protect children who are victims of abuse, violence, and crime. This annual report was produced by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, to provide information to policymakers on the work of OJJDP during fiscal year (FY) 2012. Highlights of OJJDP’s major efforts in FY 2012 include the following: nearly $268 million in grants was awarded to help at-risk youth, protect children, and improve juvenile justice systems nationwide; almost $28 million in formula-grants was awarded to designated agencies; the Juvenile Accountability Block Grants (JABG) program received awarded almost $22 million in funding to States and local governments to enhance accountability programs for youth; and more than $68 million in grants was awarded to mentoring programs offered by national and local organizations. Additional funds were awarded to Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) programs, family and juvenile drug courts, and the Juvenile Justice Reform and Reinvestment Initiative. The report also discusses the major initiatives being supported by OJJDP to promote youth safety, such as Defending Childhood: Combatting Children’s Exposure to Violence, the National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention, Girls and the Juvenile Justice System, Partnering to Prevent Bullying, and the Supportive School Discipline Initiative. The final section of the report details the work of OJJDP aimed at ensuring youth justice. These programs include public-private partnerships for reform, engaging families of children in the system, the National Center for Youth in Custody, and the Tribal Juvenile Accountability Discretionary Grants Program.
