The Comprehensive Strategy: Lessons Learned From the Pilot Sites
(NCJ 178258) March 2000
Bulletin, 12 page(s)
Coolbaugh, K., Hansel, C. J.
Offers an overview of the Comprehensive Strategy for Serious, Violent, and Chronic Juvenile Offenders, which was developed by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention to assist States and local communities in prevention and intervention efforts. The Comprehensive Strategy focuses on (1) preventing youth from becoming delinquent and (2) improving the juvenile justice system's response to delinquent offenders through a system of graduated sanctions and treatment alternatives such as community-based corrections, and aftercare services. The Bulletin describes the strategy's implementation in three sites—Lee and Duval Counties, FL, and San Diego County, CA—and discusses the lessons learned in each site. The Bulletin also provides critical success factors, major challenges and obstacles, and accomplishments and outcomes.
