Juvenile Justice Journal, Volume IV, Number 1, May 1998 (Juvenile Justice at the Crossroads)
(NCJ 165926) May 1998
OJJDP Juvenile Justice Journal, Journal, 121 page(s)
Describes the proceedings of OJJDP's national conference, "Juvenile Justice at the Crossroads," and presents many of the important program concepts discussed in the conference workshops. This online issue of Juvenile Justice contains seven articles. Six of them are based on the conference workshops. These articles are not meant to summarize the workshops as much as to convey a sense of the issues they addressed and some of the solutions they discussed. The seventh article distills the essence of the message of each of the plenary sessions. The information in this journal provides both a record of "Juvenile Justice at the Crossroads" and a reference tool for policymakers, community leaders, and other citizens who are working to improve the quality of life in their communities and the chances for productive, law-abiding lives for the at-risk children in their midst.
