8 page(s)
Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention
Presents information on temporal patterns (time of day, school vs. nonschool day) of violent crimes committed by and against juveniles; excerpted from Juvenile Offenders and Victims: 1999 National Report. The Bulletin presents the most recent available data from victim survey and police incident reports, emphasizes that serious violent crime involving juveniles peaks in the hours immediately after the close of school, and discusses implications of the data for community strategies to reduce violent juvenile crime. The Bulletin is part of the 1999 National Report Series. Each Bulletin in the series highlights selected themes at the forefront of juvenile justice policymaking and extracts relevant National Report sections (including selected graphs and tables).
