Annotation: This report provides an overview and evaluation of the fiscal 1984 activities of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), the National Advisory Committee on Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (NAC), and the Coordinating Council on Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention -- each created in 1974 when Congress passed the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act.
Abstract: This document also presents an inventory of 114 programs administered by 11 Federal agencies and department that sponsor juvenile delinquency prevention programs; it summarizes 19 Federal programs dealing with substance abuse, delinquency prevention, child abuse, and exploitation of children. The former are described in terms of targeted populations and funding levels in the past 2 years; the latter are analyzed in terms of their benefits and their relationship to the goals of Federal law. The report also contains recommendations by the NAC, the Coordinating Council, and OJJDP Administrator Alfred S. Regnery concerning Federal efforts in juvenile justice and delinquency prevention. Recommendations reflect the shift in OJJDP's mandate away from significent emphasis on deinstitutionalization and toward greater focus on accountability of juvenile offenders and reducing exploitation of juveniles. Public Law 98-473 is appended. Tables are included.
