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 special feature on the Department of Justice’s commemoration of the 26th annual National Missing Children’s Day, which honors missing children and recognizes the efforts made by law enforcement personnel and citizens to protect children from harm. The issue also includes features on OJJDP’s monthly focus groups, which are establishing an ongoing dialog with policymakers and practitioners on the most important issues facing the juvenile justice field; and an OJJDP-sponsored training course that educates law enforcement personnel on the best ways to approach and interact with adolescent girls during police calls.
