Juvenile Justice Geography, Policy, Practice, & Statistics Website Adds State Profiles

December 7, 2015


The National Center for Juvenile Justice (NCJJ) has added state juvenile justice profiles to its Juvenile Justice Geography, Policy, Practice, & Statistics (JJGPS) website. JJGPS is an online resource featuring national and state statistics on state laws and juvenile justice practices to help policymakers and stakeholders chart juvenile justice system change. The new profiles explore juvenile justice systems in each state across six topic areas. The profiles also contain state trend data on arrests and custody issues with comparisons to national data.


NCJJ is the research division of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges.

The JJGPS is one of several strategies in support of juvenile justice reform through the Models for Change initiative.
