Report, 55 page(s)
Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention
 
Summarizes key initiatives undertaken by OJJDP's Research and Program Development Division in research, evaluation, and statistics. This Report provides a review of critical findings on the root causes of juvenile delinquency and negative behavior, highlights some of OJJDP's innovative research efforts, and explores emerging research on very young offenders, school violence, girls in the juvenile justice system, and so forth. The Research Division's mission is to generate credible and useful information for improved decisionmaking. Using this information, OJJDP's other Divisions implement model demonstration programs, replicate successful programs, provide training and technical assistance, and inform the public about the nature and extent of juvenile crime and what works to prevent and stop such crime.
