Juvenile Justice System Improvement: Implementing an Evidence-Based Decision-Making Platform
(NCJ 250443) January 2017
Grant, 43 page(s)
This report draws on the experiences of jurisdictions that have worked to integrate needs assessment tools and structured decision-making tools and practices into a platform for juvenile justice decision-making through two demonstration programs--the Juvenile Justice Systems Improvement Project (JJSIP) and the Juvenile Justice Reform and Reinvestment Initiative (JJRRI). It draws on site experiences to depict key principles and implementation issues that can inform any effort by a jurisdiction to create an evidence-based decision-making platform.
