Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $199,926)

The Idaho Juvenile Justice Commission is the designated state agency that continues to support a strategy that passes 95% of the JABG funds to units of local government. The FY 2012 JABG funds will support the principles of the Balanced and Restorative Justice Model. The Idaho Juvenile Justice Commission believes this support can be addressed by providing a base amount and incentive opportunities, for each county and tribe to assist juveniles and their families in accessing treatment resources, receiving adequate supervision, and ensuring restoration of victims. Idaho pursues its goal to maintain professional training through support of juvenile detention and probation officer training academies. Training priorities are coordinated through the Juvenile Training Council and the Peace Officer Standards Training Academy. All sub-grantees of the Idaho Department of Juvenile Corrections collect, analyze, and report data on grant funded activities quarterly. Sub-grantees track output and outcome measures, to monitor the quality and impact of programming. NCA/NCF
