Describes school and community interventions shown to reduce risk factors for drug abuse and serious and violent juvenile (SVJ) offending. Based on findings of the OJJDP Study Group on Serious and Violent Juvenile Offenders (a group of researchers convened to study the population of SVJ offenders), this Bulletin examines five types of school interventions (structured playground activities, behavioral consultation, behavioral monitoring, metal detectors, and schoolwide reorganization) and eight types of community interventions (citizen mobilization, situational prevention, comprehensive citizen intervention, mentoring, afterschool recreation programs, policing strategies, policy changes, and mass media interventions).
