Juvenile Residential Facility Census, 2008: Selected Findings Juvenile Residential Facility Census, 2008: Selected Findings (Bulletin)
NCJ 231683

OJJDP developed the biannual Juvenile Residential Facility Census (JRFC) to collect information about the facilities in which juvenile offenders are held. Facilities provide information about characteristics such as their size, structure, type, ownership, and security arrangements. This bulletin presents findings from the 2008 JRFC—findings that are generally positive. JRFC data indicate that the population of juvenile offenders in custody continued to decline—a decrease of 12 percent from 2006, a trend that may be explained by the decline in juvenile arrests.

Reducing Drinking Among Underage Air Force Members in Five Communities Reducing Drinking Among Underage Air Force Members in Five Communities (Bulletin)
NCJ 232616

Preventing alcohol abuse by minors and young adults remains a challenge to most communities, particularly on military bases, where junior enlisted personnel face a high-stress work environment. In 2006, OJJDP provided grants to five communities with local Air Force bases to implement the agency's Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) initiative. This bulletin presents findings from an evaluation of EUDL activities in these communities. For more information about this publication, see the article, "OJJDP Launches Publication Series on Underage Drinking," in this issue.
