Annotation
This is an overview of the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention's (OJJDP's) compilation of annual juvenile delinquency development statements for fiscal years 1990 through 1992, which are reports that describe policies, programs, and practices of Federal agencies involved in developing juvenile delinquency prevention and treatment goals and policies.
Abstract
The primary purpose of the annual development statements is to show how Federal agencies are implementing the provisions of the Federal Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDP). This report provides a comprehensive view of the programs and activities of 20 Federal agencies engaged in delinquency prevention, treatment, control, diversion, rehabilitation, planning, education, training, technical assistance, and research. For fiscal years 1990 through 1992, the number of Federal programs aimed at reducing school violence, assisting students in staying in school, providing alternative education, and assisting educators increased 50 percent. The number of programs that address missing and exploited children doubled. Program title, target population, and agency indexes provide easy access to information. A list of participating agencies and their addresses is provided.
