Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $400,000)

This project will support Development Services Group, Inc. to provide training, technical assistance and resources to State Advisory Groups, as outlined in Section 223 of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Act of 2002. Federal legislation requires the governor or chief executive officer 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 and treatment of juvenile delinquency, the administration of juvenile justice or the reduction of juvenile delinquency.

The SAG's play a critical role in administering juvenile justice in their respective states. The SAG's set priority areas and participate in the development of the Three-year plan based on analysis of local crime statistics, gaps in related systems, and trends within the state. This cooperative agreement will continue to enhance, refine and manage state advisory group training to support effective collaborative working relationships with OJJDP and SAG members. NCA/NCF
