OJJDP News @ a Glance, Newsletter, 10 page(s)
Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention
OJJDPís bimonthly newsletter presents notices of agency activities, recent publications, funding opportunities, and upcoming events. This issue includes a special feature on the Department of Justiceís launch of a month-long media campaign, as part of OJJDPís Project Safe Childhood initiative to combat the online exploitation of children. The campaign uses a combination of public service ads in English and Spanish stressing two themes: reminding parents that the Internet can be an unsafe place for children and deterring would-be predators from using the Internet to entice minors into engaging in illegal sexual behavior. The issue also includes features on the new Interstate Compact for Juveniles, a law that facilitates the tracking of cases across State lines, and OJJDPís Court Coordination Program, designed to improve delivery of services to juveniles with multiple needs.
