Annotation: This report describes the technical assistance and training provided by the U.S. Justice Department’s Office of Justice Program’s (OJP’s) Diagnostic Center in response to a request from the Seattle Core Team (SCT) for assistance in determining the nature and extent of juvenile domestic violence (JDV) in the city and in assessing and improving the city’s capacity to address JDV through public services, both within and outside the juvenile justice system.
Abstract: While reviewing the Seattle Youth Violence Prevention Initiative (SYVPI) in 2013, the Office of City Auditor discovered that JDV accounted for a significant share of Seattle’s juvenile violent crime arrests between 2008 and 2012. The Office of City Auditor convened a multidisciplinary core team composed of local law enforcement, juvenile justice agencies, service providers, and research partners to address JDV issues in the city. This report documents the nature and findings of the Diagnostic Center’s work with the SCT in analyzing data on the prevalence and patterns of JDV in the city and data on gaps in services for addressing JDV issues. The report covers various topics for training and technical assistance (TTA) in addressing JDV. TTA recommendations address the following topics: prevention and awareness; data collection/analysis and performance management; community partnerships; and intervention strategies. The Diagnostic Center also identified data-driven and evidence-based practices that align with Seattle’s goals and objectives. The report concludes with an outline of next steps and contact information for the OJP Diagnostic Center.
