Abstract: OJJDP was created by Congress in 1974 to help communities and States prevent juvenile delinquency and improve their juvenile justice systems. OJJDP provides national leadership, coordination, and resources to help States and local communities meet the new challenges they are experiencing in their juvenile justice systems. The Comprehensive Strategy for Serious, Violent, and Chronic Juvenile Offenders was at the center of OJJDP's accomplishments during the past 2 years. OJJDP funded SafeFutures programs, the Safe Kids/Safe Streets program, the Juvenile Mentoring Program, the Family Strengthening Program, the Victims Model Court Project, a curriculum to prevent hate crimes. It also focused on the issue of missing and exploited children. Sharing information by publications, videos, CD-ROMs, satellite videoconferences, e-mail, and Internet sites is an OJJDP priority. These and other activities took place during a period when the juvenile crime rate declined and juvenile violence received increasing concern from parents, schools, and the community.
