Abstract: THE MAJOR FUNCTIONS OF NIJJDP ARE RESEARCH, EVALUATION, AND PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT; INFORMATION DEVELOPMENT AND DISSEMINATION; TRAINING DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION; AND STANDARDS DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION. THE RESEARCH, EVALUATION, AND PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT DIVISION HAS SPONSORED NATIONWIDE EFFORTS TO SURVEY DELINQUENT BEHAVIOR IN THE U.S., ANALYZE NATIONAL DATA ON VICTIMIZATIONS, AND COMPARE THESE ESTIMATES OF THE VOLUME OF DELINQUENT BEHAVIOR WITH ESTIMATES BASED ON OFFICIAL RECORDS. THE AGENCY'S RESEARCH AND PROGRAM PERSPECTIVES ON JUVENILE DELINQUENCY CONSIST OF (1) DELINQUENT BEHAVIOR AND ITS PREVENTION, (2) THE JUVENILE JUSTICE SYSTEM (POLICE, COURTS, CORRECTIONS), AND (3) COMMUNITY-BASED ALTERNATIVES TO JUVENILE JUSTICE PROCESSING. THE SECOND DIVISION, INFORMATION DEVELOPMENTS AND DISSEMINATION, HAS TWO MAIN COMPONENTS: ASSESSMENT CENTERS AND A CLEARINGHOUSE. THE THIRD DIVERSION, THAT OF TRAINING DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION, SPONSORS SEVERAL TRAINING ACTIVITIES, BUT ITS GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT HAS BEEN THE DEVELOPMENT AND PLANNING OF THE JUVENILE JUSTICE TRAINING RESOURCE CENTER (JJTRC), EXPECTED TO BE OPERATIONAL BY THE FALL OF 1980. JJTRC WILL SERVE AS A CLEARINGHOUSE AND INFORMATION CENTER ON TRAINING THROUGHOUT THE U.S. FINALLY, THE STANDARDS DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION DIVISION REACHED A MAJOR MILESTONE IN 1979 WITH COMPLETION OF ITS STANDARDS DEVELOPMENT WORK. IN ADDITION TO A SUMMARY OF NIJJDP'S ACTIVITIES SINCE ITS ESTABLISHMENT IN JUNE 1975 THROUGH FISCAL YEAR 1979, THE REPORT INCLUDES A SECTION SUMMARIZING THE ACTIVITIES AND RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE INSTITUTE'S ADVISORY COMMITTEE. RELATED MATERIAL ABOUT PROJECT TITLES AND GRANTS IS APPENDED.
