OJJDP News @ a Glance , Newsletter
Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention
OJJDP's bimonthly newsletter presents notices of agency activities, recent publications, funding opportunities, and upcoming events. This issue includes a feature on OJJDP's participation in major national conferences on child abuse prevention and juvenile justice issues. In addition, the issue describes the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and the more than $2.76 billion that will be made available under the Act for State and local law enforcement and for other criminal and juvenile justice activities. The newsletter also provides updates on OJJDP's juvenile drug court initiative and efforts to reduce the disproportionate number of minority youth who come into contact with the justice system. An overview of the Survey of Youth in Residential Placement (SYRP) and upcoming OJJDP Bulletins describing the first national SYRP is also included.
