OJJDP News @ a Glance
10 page(s)
This issue's Message From the Administrator focuses on how OJJDP is changing its Title II Formula Grants program to help states improve their juvenile justice systems, maintain public safety and ensure youth are treated fairly and held appropriately accountable for their actions. The top story highlights Administrator Harp's participation in the National Campaign to Stop Violence's Do The Write Thing Challenge ceremony and excerpts from finalists' essays. Other features note Administrator Harp's Coalition for Juvenile Justice Annual Conference address, the OJJDP-coordinated National Law Enforcement Training on Child Exploitation, and the demo of an agency-supported suicide prevention simulation. How a woman's childhood experience with the OJJDP-supported National Court Appointed Special Advocate Association inspired her child advocacy career is examined, as are factors that may prevent future delinquency in children who are maltreated or abused. Agency news includes coverage of a staff session on averted school violence, and a spotlight on Senior Policy Advisor Sanzanna Dean.
