Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $498,897)

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) is currently developing a geographic information system (GIS) that will play a key role in promoting integration of state and local community assets data in ways that can support juvenile justice objectives of service providers, law enforcement agencies and the community. This project responds to the need for tools to promote law enforcement agency cooperation and data sharing to assess risk factors in geographic context and to help target strategies to deliver cost-effective services to youth and make communities safer. This project will be developed primarily around OJJDP program initiatives to identify risk and protective factors associated with delinquency. IACP will add value to this critical GIS by investing its expertise in law enforcement operations and technology, and by leveraging a significant level of cooperation from state, local, and special purpose law enforcement that is vital to the success of the project.
