This OJJDP In Focus factsheet presents the importance for, and resources available to, juvenile justice facilities to actively engage in emergency planning to mitigate, respond to, and recover from natural, man-made, technological and public health emergencies.
Abstract
All juvenile justice facilities should be actively engaged in emergency planning to mitigate, respond to, and recover from natural, man-made, technological and public health emergencies. Funds provided by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) to tribal, state, and local juvenile residential facilities ensure that the facilities are prepared to continue operations, prioritize the safety and well-being of youth and staff, and reduce damage to the physical facility during and after an emergency.
