OJJDP Bulletin Examines Developmental Patterns of Girls' Delinquent Behavior
December 17, 2013
The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) has released the bulletin "Developmental Sequences of Girls' Delinquent Behavior." The bulletin is part of a series on the findings of the Girls Study Group, which OJJDP established to guide the development, testing, and implementation of strategies to prevent and intervene in girls' delinquency. The bulletin summarizes the methods, findings, and implications from a collaborative analysis of data that the Denver Youth Survey and the Fast Track Project collected on the developmental patterns of girls' offending from childhood through adolescence.
