Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $450,000)

This project will support Development Services Group, Inc. to provide training, technical assistance and information to State Advisory Groups, as outlined in Section 223 of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act of 2002, as amended. Federal legislation requires the governor of each state and territory to establish a state advisory group (SAG)comprised of members who have the training, experience, or special knowledge concerning the prevention, reduction, and treatment of juvenile delinquency and the administration of juvenile justice. SAGs play a critical role in defining juvenile justice within their respective states.

The SAG in each state sets priority areas and develops a 3-year plan based on an analysis of local crime statistics, gaps in related systems, trends within the state, and identified need. This grant will develop, enhance, refine, and manage state advisory group training to support effective collaborative working relationships with OJJDP and SAG members. NCA/NCF
