National Center for Juvenile Justice Web Site Explores Dual-Systems Integration
October 30, 2014
The National Center for Juvenile Justice has released a new section of the Juvenile Justice GPSGeography, Policy, Practice & Statistics (JJGPS), an online resource funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. This Web site features national and state statistics on state laws and juvenile justice practice to help chart juvenile justice system change. The new systems integration section examines policy and practice for integrating information and services for dual status youth involved in both the child protection and juvenile justice systems.
The JJGPS site also features a section on jurisdictional boundaries. Other sections will focus on juvenile defense, racial/ethnic fairness, juvenile justice services, and status offense issues.
JJGPS is one of several strategies in support of juvenile justice reform through the Models for Change initiative.
The National Center for Juvenile Justice is the research division of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges.
