  Annotation: This Justice Resource Update for November 2010 reports on recent activities and achievements of the Office of Justice Programs (OJP) of the U.S. Justice Department.
  Abstract: OJP launched the Evidence Integration Initiative (E2I) in order to support justice practitioners and policymakers by providing better tools and information to help them understand, access, and integrate evidence of proven practices into their decisions. Some recent highlights of E2I efforts are described. This Update also announces that the OJP Annual report is now available online. In addition, the Update reports that the Federal Government awarded nearly $76 million in fiscal year 2010 in order to improve the court services, coordination, and substance abuse treatment of adult and juvenile drug treatment courts. Regarding crime trends, the Update reports a decline in violent crime from 19.3 to 17.1 victimizations per 1,000 persons during 2009, as well as a decrease in property crime from 134.7 to 127.4 crimes per 1,000 households, due primarily to a decrease in theft offenses. A report on the September meeting of the Coordinating Council on Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention indicates it featured presentations on a broad range of topics, including updates from Coordinating Council teams that are examining Federal practices in four priority areas: education and at-risk youth, tribal youth and juvenile justice, juvenile reentry and transition to adulthood, and racial and/or ethnic disparities in the juvenile justice system and related systems. Other OJP activities reported pertain to services for victims of identity theft and financial fraud, strategies for offender reentry in Indian Country, and a nationwide event that promoted afterschool programs. The Update concludes with brief descriptions of upcoming OJP events.
