This grant supports training and technical assistance for chief and deputy prosecutors in order to strengthen their leadership roles and performance in the area of juvenile justice. The goal is to help prosecutors improve control of delinquency in their jurisdictions. An ancillary goal is to develop juvenile work as a recognized and respected area of specialization for career prosecutors. Under this award APRI will: A) Promote adoption of a comprehensive, "balanced approach" to juvenile justice by prosecutors; B) Advance the knowledge, and skill level of juvenile court prosecutors; and C) Help prosecutors develop and implement performance measures for their juvenile justice systems. The APRI's juvenile justice prosecution project's work plan essentially covers three types of courses or workshops: 1) Training primarily for chief prosecutors and juvenile unit chiefs dealing with juvenile justice policy, leadership and management issues. 2) Training for newly hired or assigned juvenile court prosecutors covering juvenile law and procedure, alternative juvenile programs, and other features specific to the handling of juvenile cases. 3) Special issues training of significant interest to prosecutors in juvenile work (child development, mental health, child sexual abuse, computer crime, etc).
