This Annual Report addresses the activities of the U.S. Justice Department’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) during fiscal year 2013 (October 1, 2012 - September 30, 2013).
Abstract
The report contains information and data on OJJDP’s activities under the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (JJDP) Act of 1974, as amended. This includes OJJDP’s activities in the Missing Children Program and the Title V Incentive Grants for Local Delinquency Prevention Programs. Information is also provided on the Juvenile Accountability Block Grants Program under the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968. OJJDP was established by Congress through the JJDP Act of 1974, as amended. It is a component of the Office of Justice Programs (OJP) within the U.S. Justice Department. OJJDP provides national leadership, coordination, and resources to prevent and respond to juvenile delinquency and victimization. It supports States and communities in their efforts to develop and implement effective and coordinated prevention and intervention programs, so as to improve the juvenile justice system in protecting public safety, holding offenders accountable, and providing treatment and rehabilitation services tailored to the needs of youth and their families. In fiscal year 2013 OJJDP awarded just over $271 million in grants to assist at-risk youth, protect children, and improve juvenile justice systems nationwide. In addition to financial support, OJJDP provided an array of resources for stakeholders. Details on these activities are provided throughout the report in side bars entitled, “Seeing Connections With the Field.“ In addition to reporting funding highlights, the report describes signature initiatives and focus areas. Information and data are presented in a chapter entitled, “Seeing Safety: Protecting Children and Preventing Youth Violence.“ Another chapter reports on OJJDP-sponsored programs intended to increase opportunities for youth and keep them out of formal processing by the juvenile justice system.
