Safe Kids/Safe Streets is a research-based demonstration program that seeks to reduce juvenile delinquency by helping break the cycle of child and adolescent abuse and neglect. This demonstration program encourages localities to restructure and strengthen the criminal and juvenile justice systems to be more comprehensive and proactive in helping children and adolescents and their families who have been or are at risk of bing abused and neglected. The program seeks to answer the question of whether a combination of systems reform, training, prevention education, data management and continuum of services strategies can measurably improve child safety and well being. This demonstration project is based on the Cycle of Violence research (conducted by Cathy Spatz Widom with funding from NIJ) that shows the association between early abuse and/or neglect as a child and later delinquency and criminality. The program design and management structure was informed by an extensive series of focus groups, surveys and discussions with researchers and practitioners from across the nation and was vetted by the major bureaus and offices of OJP and DHHS.
