OJJDP-funded Brief Released To Help Juvenile Court Judges Use Data

The National Center for Juvenile Justice, with support from OJJDP, has published "5 Ways Juvenile Court Judges Can Use Data." This issue brief provides examples of how juvenile court judges can use data to improve the functioning of their courtrooms and outcomes for youth appearing before the court. This brief is one of a series that will include briefs for law enforcement and corrections administrators. The briefs are being developed through the OJJDP-funded Juvenile Justice Model Data Project, which seeks to improve the quality and consistency of juvenile justice data through developing guidance for states and jurisdictions on how to collect, analyze, and use juvenile justice data.
