Program Description

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) envisions a nation where our children are healthy, educated, and free from violence. If they come into contact with the juvenile justice system, the contact should be rare, fair, and beneficial to them. To make this vision a reality, prosecutors handling juvenile justice cases need appropriate training on the handling of juvenile offenders, including juveniles arrested for offenses related to missing and exploited children's issues. This program promotes developmentally appropriate approaches in handling juvenile offender cases through development and delivery of competency-based training and professional resources for prosecutors. It will explore alternatives to incarceration using a more balanced approach for holding youthful offenders accountable, ensuring community safety, and creating more effective outcomes for youthful offenders. This program is authorized pursuant to paragraph (1) and (6) under the Juvenile Justice heading, and paragraph (12) under the State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance heading in the Department of Justice Appropriations Act, 2014, P.L.113-76: 128 Stat. 5, 62-4.
