Abstract: THE 84 ANNOTATED STUDIES, REPORTS, AND OTHER PUBLICATIONS LISTED HAVE BEEN ARRANGED INTO FOUR CATEGORIES. THE SECTION ON GENERAL ISSUES AND VIEWS COVERS PUBLICATIONS DEALING WITH BROAD AREAS OF THE SUBJECT MATTER, SUCH AS POLICE DISCRETION IN THE ARREST OF JUVENILES, SPECIAL POLICE UNITS WHICH OFFER INTENSIVE COUNSELING TO JUVENILE OFFENDERS IN LIEU OF ARREST, AND CASES OF POLICE REFERRALS TO OTHER COMMUNITY AGENCIES. A THIRD SECTION DEALS WITH LITERATURE ON PROGRAMS BOTH INITIATED AND CARRIED OUT BY PROBATION AND COURT PERSONNEL. JUVENILES IN PROGRAMS OF THIS TYPE ARE DIVERTED SOLELY TO RESOURCES WITHIN THE JUVENILE JUSTICE SYSTEM. THE LAST SECTION INCLUDES PROGRAMS IN WHICH JUVENILES ARE DIVERTED TO AGENCIES OR ORGANIZATIONS OUTSIDE OF THE JUVENILE JUSTICE SYSTEM. THIS BIBLIOGRAPHY IS ARRANGED BY AUTHOR AND A SUBJECT INDEX IS PROVIDED.
