OJJDP Bulletin Examining Juvenile Transfer Laws Now Available in Print
August 13, 2010
Originally released online in 2008, the OJJDP bulletin "Juvenile Transfer Laws: An Effective Deterrent to Delinquency?" is now available for the first time in print.
The bulletin provides an overview of research on the deterrent effects of transferring youth from juvenile to criminal courts, focusing on large-scale, comprehensive, OJJDP-funded studies on the effect of transfer laws on recidivism. The information it provides should help inform public discussion and policy decisions.
"Juvenile Transfer Laws: An Effective Deterrent to Delinquency?" is available online at www.ojjdp.gov/publications/PubAbstract.asp?pubi=242419.
Print copies can be ordered online from the National Criminal Justice Reference Service.
