Focuses on four types of risk and protective factors: individual, family, peer, and school and community. Early intervention is crucial to preventing delinquent behavior, and understanding the factors related to child delinquency is essential to effective early childhood intervention. As part of its effort to understand and respond to these needs, OJJDP formed the Study Group on Very Young Offenders. This Bulletin, part of OJJDP's Child Delinquency series, is derived from the chapters devoted to these critical areas for prevention and intervention in the Study Group's final report, Child Delinquents: Development, Intervention, and Service Needs.
