Alaska's juvenile justice system is a unified State system that is financed and managed solely by the State. Community-based juvenile programs are funded by both Federal and State funds. DJJ is requesting a 100% waiver from the pass-through requirement to units of local government. JABG Advisory Board members, in coordination with the State's Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) have prepared this FY2012 JABG application focused on the following system improvements: Purpose Area 1 - Graduated Responses - funds will be allocated for research, training and staff support, to enhance the State's electronic monitoring program and to support increased accountability of youth through improved communication tools for JPOs and facility staff; Purpose Area 14 - Restorative Justice - funds will be allocated to support victim services, restitution collection, restorative justice training and technical support to meet the goal of improving the juvenile services for youth returning to their communities through video conferencing and by supporting annual meetings for transitional services and education staff; and Purpose Area 17 - Reentry - will be utilized to support pre and post reentry services for youth returning to communities through video conferencing, and by supporting annual meetings for transitional services and education staff. All performance measures will be measured by data provided to the JABG Coordinator based on the federal reporting requirements. NCA/NCF
