  Abstract: This annual report is a report card on the efforts and compliance by the States and territories in response to the requirements of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act of 2008. The Federal Advisory Committee on Juvenile Justice (FACJJ) Annual Report to the President and Congress focuses on the need to reauthorize the JJDP Act of 2008, and presents 19 recommendations to the President and Congress that focus on major issues facing the Nation’s juvenile justice system. These recommendations fall into five broad areas: deinstitutionalization of status offenders; jail removal and sight and sound separation; disproportionate minority contact; effective assistance of counsel; and mental health, substance abuse, and the juvenile justice system. Additionally, in this publication, FACJJ presents a report on national compliance with the four core protections of the JJDP Act of 2008. These core protections are: deinstitutionalizing status offenders and nonoffenders; separating adult and juvenile offenders in secure institutions; eliminating the practice of detaining or confining juveniles in adult jails and lockups; and addressing the disproportionate number of minority youth who come into contact with the juvenile justice system.
