  Annotation: In accordance with its mandate, the Federal Advisory Committee on Juvenile Justice (FACJJ) - which is composed of juvenile justice experts and career professionals from each U.S. State and territory - presents its 2009 Annual Report, which calls for the leadership of the President, members of Congress, the U.S. Attorney General, and the Administrator of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) in implementing nine recommendations.
  Abstract: FACJJ recommends that Congress act quickly to reauthorize the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act, with the encouragement of the President, in order to show that juvenile justice is a priority in the new administration. A second recommendations is that the President, Congress, Attorney General, and the OJJDP Administrator use OJJDP to return the Nation and OJJDP to the core principles that have successfully guided juvenile justice to greater levels of community involvement and lower levels of juvenile crime. FACJJ also recommends that Congress and the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) ensure that new laws and policies related to juveniles are grounded in solid research and evaluation and that the long-term impact of any new legislation related to juvenile justice and delinquency prevention is monitored. Another recommendation is that the DOJ and Congress re-examine the Adam Walsh Act, with the objective of limiting the registration of juvenile sex offenders to those whom a court determines pose a continuing danger to the public. FACJJ also recommends that OJJDP reinforce and expand its training and technical assistance program to help States and territories strengthen the infrastructure of their juvenile justice systems. Further, OJJDP should establish a process for regular discussions with State and territory juvenile justice practitioners, researchers, policymakers, and leaders regarding juvenile justice issues.
