National Center for Juvenile Justice Updates Resource Website

March 24, 2015

National Center for Juvenile JusticeThe National Center for Juvenile Justice has released a new section of the Juvenile Justice GPS—Geography, Policy, Practice & Statistics (JJGPS), an online resource funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. This website features national and state information on state laws and juvenile justice practice to help chart system change. The new juvenile justice services section examines how states are organized and how they are advancing evidence-based practices and reporting system performance.

The JJGPS site also features sections on jurisdictional boundaries, juvenile defense, and systems integration. Other sections will focus on racial/ethnic fairness 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.
