The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) has released the first in a series of national overviews that describe where states stand on a variety of juvenile justice issues, including how they classify status offenses, extended age of jurisdiction, and administration of community supervision and aftercare services.
