|Addressing the Training Needs of Juvenile Prosecutors|
Prosecutors play a key role in ensuring an effective juvenile justice system. Nationally, there are very limited resources available to state and local juvenile prosecution offices for necessary training, education and professional development. Furthermore, a need exists for the continued development and enhancement of national, state, and local standards and technical assistance to foster continuous improvement in the field. The FY 2019 Addressing the Training Needs of Juvenile Prosecutors program is designed to fill these gaps.
