  Annotation: This newsletter describes a new approach to information dissemination by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP).
Abstract: The OJJDP uses many methods to share information, such as research, statistics, and successful programs, with juvenile justice practitioners, policymakers, and the public. These methods include print publications, electronic products, and satellite videoconferences. Currently, the agency is using its Web site more and is exploring the advantages of electronic publishing. Beginning in 2002, OJJDP is targeting its mailings of publications and solicitations to a more defined audience. Electronic versions of all publications and solicitations may be viewed and downloaded at the agency’s Web site. A limited number of print copies will be available from the Juvenile Justice Clearinghouse on request. New publications and solicitations will be announced via newsletter, the Web site, and the JUVJUST listserv. This will reduce paper clutter and bring considerable savings in postage and print costs for taxpayers. OJJDP is also considering online publication, which would provide constituents with the most up-to-date and comprehensive information possible. In 2002, OJJDP will give high priority to preparing serious and violent juvenile offenders to return successfully to the community after they leave correctional institutions and training schools. The Serious and Violent Offender Re-entry Initiative represents a partnership between Federal, State, and local agencies. The Initiative will have three phases: (1) Protect and Prepare (providing education, mental health, and job services); (2) Control and Restore (community-based transition program availability); and (3) Sustain and Support (community-based long-term support programs). The third National Gang Symposium will be held June 11-13, 2002 in Orlando, Florida. The symposium will focus on innovative and successful gang-related programs and strategies. OJJDP is currently accepting FY 2002 funding applications under the Juvenile Mentoring Program (JUMP), and the Drug-Free Communities Support Program.
