Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $1,024,570)

The JABG Program for the state of New York is administered by the New York Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS). As required, New York retains 25% of JABG funds at the state level and passes through 75% to units of local government. The goal of the Juvenile Justice Advisory Group's (JJAG) plan for delinquency prevention is to reduce serious, violent and chronic juvenile crime through: supporting the development of timely and accurate information about juvenile crime, system processing and the risks and needs of juvenile offenders; facilitating wise decision-making throughout the juvenile justice system; supporting prevention and reentry strategies for high-risk youth; and reducing disproportionate minority contact in the juvenile justice system. Consistent with this goal, the JJAG has designated the following JABG priorities: Purpose areas 9 - juvenile records; 10 - interagency information-sharing; 11- accountability based programs to reduce recidivism; and 12 -risk and needs assessments.

Local accountability activities for the juvenile offender will include individualized consequences through which a youth is held responsible for the loss, damage, or injury perpetrated on a victim. State level activities will include support of placement reforms; developing a juvenile justice research database; providing targeted information to better meet the needs of youth locally; and supporting institutionalization of risk and needs assessments. Mandatory federal performance measures will be collected to measure attainment of project goals. NCA/NCF
