OJJDP Publishes Updates on Comprehensive Juvenile Justice System Improvement Initiative

In 2014, OJJDP selected Kentucky, Hawaii, and Georgia to participate in its Comprehensive Juvenile Justice System Improvement Initiative. Since then, South Dakota and West Virginia (2015), Kansas (2016), and Utah (2017) have joined the initiative. Under the initiative's Comprehensive Strategy to Juvenile Justice Reform, these states are working to provide diversion alternatives, community-based options, and other improvements to reduce recidivism, decrease correctional spending, and improve public safety. OJJDP awarded funding to the Crime and Justice Institute of Community Resources for Justice to provide training and technical assistance to help these states implement their juvenile justice improvements.
