Construction, Operations, and Staff Training for Juvenile Confinement Facilities
(NCJ 178928) January 2000
OJJDP Juvenile Accountability Block Grants Series, Bulletin, 28 page(s)
Roush, D., McMillen, M.
Provides practitioners practical guidance on best practices under Program Purpose Area 1 of the Juvenile Accountability Block Grants (JABG) program. In particular, the Bulletin presents information on construction decisions, master planning, facility development, operations, and staff training. With its step-by-step explanation of the planning process, thorough instructions on determining the type of facility needed, and detailed discussion of the key elements of operation, the Bulletin is a valuable resource to jurisdictions. It also includes an extensive list of references, a "For Further Information" section, and a "Useful Publications" box, all of which identify additional sources of information relating to construction, operation, and staff training. The Bulletin is part of OJJDP's JABG Best Practices series, which is intended to help States and units of local government develop programs in the 12 purpose areas established for JABG funding.
