Abstract: The agency has historically undertaken the role of change agent for the State's criminal justice system. During 1992 it presented the findings of its Minority Research Project, implemented a community-based prevention/intervention initiative to prevent future delinquent behavior among targeted at-risk youths, and developed the first joint statewide victim assistance conference in collaboration with three other organizations. The commission also administered a total of 317 subgrant awards in the amount of $25.4 million, organized a pilot project to develop a model management information system for community-based victim service agencies, and collaborated with other agencies in a Federal initiative designed to introduce victim-related reforms in the correctional system.
