Reports Evaluate OJJDP's Juvenile Justice Reform and Reinvestment Initiative

June 27, 2017

JJRRI Report

The Urban Institute's Justice Policy Center has released a series of research reports based on its evaluation of OJJDP's Juvenile Justice Reform and Reinvestment Initiative (JJRRI), which was implemented in demonstration sites in Delaware, Iowa, and Milwaukee County, WI. JJRRI helped the sites develop and implement a comprehensive approach to juvenile justice decisionmaking and practice to reduce recidivism, make them more cost effective, and improve existing services for justice-involved youth. The reports examine the implementation of JJRRI, including the Standardized Program Evaluation Protocol (SPEP™) as a tool to improve programs and help reduce recidivism.
