Best Practices in Juvenile Accountability: Overview
(NCJ 184745) April 2003
OJJDP Juvenile Accountability Block Grants Series, Bulletin, 12 page(s)
Beyer, M.
Presents an overview of OJJDP's Juvenile Accountability Block Grants (JABG) Best Practices Series of Bulletins. JABG was created on the premise that juvenile offenders should be held accountable for their crimes both as a matter of basic justice and as a way to prevent and deter delinquency. This Bulletin provides an indepth history of the JABG Program, reviews the developmental perspective shaping juvenile accountability, and offers case histories illustrating effective practices that promote accountability. It also highlights information from other Bulletins in the series to enhance the understanding of each of the 12 JABG program purpose areas and includes a bibliography of key references from the series to supplement that understanding.
