Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention
OJJDP's bimonthly newsletter presents notices of agency activities, recent publications, funding opportunities, and upcoming events. This issue's lead article reports on the U.S. Department of Justice's recent op-ed in The Baltimore Sun stating that research has proven "Scared Straight" programs to be ineffective as means of deterring juvenile delinquency. The issue also includes special features on Child Abuse Prevention Month, the National Girls Institute's launch of listening sessions nationwide, and OJJDP's National Conference in October 2011.
