    • Title V of the JJDP Act states that the administrator
    • shall give priority to “developing data-driven

more on why
More on why . . .

Juvenile justice is a system apart from the criminal justice system (kids are not “little adults”).

Juvenile justice system covers the full spectrum from abuse/neglect, delinquency, and family matters.

There are key opportunities for intervention and partnership with other organizations and agencies.

We benefit from utilizing the knowledge garnered from the body of juvenile justice research.
