Description

Courts and child welfare agencies face significant challenges in managing complex child abuse, neglect, and related cases and heavy caseloads. In addition, they are required to comply with federal child welfare reform laws and initiatives to achieve safe, permanent placements for abused and neglected children. Through this program, OJJDP seeks to provide judicial, legal, and social service professionals with training and technical assistance to enhance their understanding that commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking of minors are acts of abuse and violence against children and adolescents and to meet the other challenges that they face. This program is authorized under the Victims of Child Abuse (VOCA) Act 42 U.S.C. § 13022.
