  Annotation: After an overview of the major accomplishments of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) in 1999, this 1999 OJJDP Annual Report describes delinquency prevention and intervention programs, programs that specifically address school violence, efforts to strengthen the juvenile justice system, programs designed to reduce the victimization of children, the enhancement of public safety and law enforcement, and comprehensive community-based initiatives.
  Abstract: The Comprehensive Strategy for Serious, Violent, and Chronic Juvenile Offenders continued to guide much of OJJDP's work during fiscal year 1999. This is a research-based framework that calls for addressing juvenile delinquency and crime by using community-based prevention programs that reduce risk factors and provide buffering protective factors. Tenets of the Comprehensive Strategy run through many of the programs OJJDP supported in fiscal year 1999, programs designed to help communities prevent delinquency, address school violence, strengthen the juvenile justice system, reduce the victimization of children, improve and support law enforcement efforts, and develop comprehensive strategies. Among the many accomplishments of OJJDP during fiscal year 1999 were the implementation of two major new programs. The Safe Schools/Healthy Students Initiative, a joint effort with the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is helping 54 communities implement community-wide programs to make their schools safe and drug-free and to promote healthy childhood development. The Tribal Youth Program is helping 34 American Indian and Alaska Native tribal communities develop programs to prevent and control youth violence and substance abuse.
