Presents findings from the second round of performance measurement data (for the reporting period of April 1, 2004, through March 31, 2005) collected from the States and territories and analyzed by OJJDP. Although the first round of JABG reporting covered a 6-month period (October 1, 2003, through March 31, 2004), the authors have, where possible, compared data findings from the two reporting periods. This Report also outlines the history of the JABG program and OJJDPs development of the JABG performance measurement system. The Report goes on to describe how JABG expenditures affected State and local juvenile justice infrastructures and practices, identify the types of programs that States have developed using JABG funds, and detail performance measurement data from JABG program activities. The Report concludes with a section that highlights OJJDPs plans to enhance the program.
