Abstract: DURING FISCAL YEAR 1978, THE OJJDP ADMINISTERED A BUDGET IN EXCESS OF $150 MILLION. THE OJJDP IS COMPOSED OF TWO OPERATING DIVISIONS: THE OFFICE OF OPERATIONS AND THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR JUVENILE JUSTICE AND DELINQUENCY PREVENTION. THE OFFICE OF OPERATIONS IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE OVERALL ADMINISTRATION OF OJJDP'S GRANTS AND ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS AND FOR THE PROMULGATION OF NATIONAL JUVENILE DELINQUENCY POLICIES, OBJECTIVES, AND PRIORITIES. SPECIFIC AREAS OF RESPONSIBILITY INCLUDE THE CONCENTRATION OF FEDERAL EFFORT, THE SPECIAL EMPHASIS GRANT PROGRAM, FORMULA GRANTS, AND TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE. GRANTS AND PROGRAMS FUNDED IN THESE AREAS ARE DISCUSSED. THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR JUVENILE JUSTICE AND DELINQUENCY PREVENTION (NIJJDP) WAS CREATED TO SERVE AS THE RESEARCH, EVALUATION, AND INFORMATION CENTER FOR THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT'S EFFORT TO DEAL WITH THE GROWING JUVENILE DELINQUENCY PROBLEM IN THE U.S. THE INSTITUTE IS REQUIRED TO CONDUCT RESEARCH RELATING TO DELINQUENCY AND JUVENILE JUSTICE; EVALUATE JUVENILE JUSTICE AND DELINQUENCY PROGRAMS AT THE FEDERAL AND STATE LEVELS; COLLECT, SYNTHESIZE, AND DISSEMINATE INFORMATION ON ALL ASPECTS OF DELINQUENCY; DEVELOP STANDARDS FOR THE ADMINISTRATION OF JUVENILE JUSTICE; AND TRAIN PROFESSIONALS AND OTHERS IN THE FIELD. THE INSTITUTE'S PROGRAMS IN THESE FIVE AREAS ARE DISCUSSED AND THE RESULTS OF THESE ACTIVITIES ARE REVIEWED. RESEARCH INCLUDES STUDIES ON THE CAUSES AND CORRELATES OF DELINQUENCY, LEARNING DISABILITIES, DELINQUENCY AND DRUG USE, SERIOUS JUVENILE CRIME, AND VICTIMIZATION. THE REPORT ALSO INCLUDES TESTIMONY OF THE NATIONAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE, INFORMATION ON THE COORDINATING COUNCIL, A REPORT ON SIX SELECTED FEDERAL PROGRAMS, AND PROCEDURES FOR SUBMISSION OF DELINQUENCY DEVELOPMENT STATEMENTS.
