OJJDP has released the spring 2017 issue of its online Journal of Juvenile Justice. This issue features articles on factors that help reduce recidivism and support successful reentry for youth. This includes articles on how juvenile facility operations affect recidivism, the effect that neighborhood characteristics have on recidivism rates, and how girls perceive their supports and challenges as they transition to home after incarceration. Other articles focus on the decisionmaking process of juvenile probation officers, the impact of candidate resumes from delinquents and nondelinquents on the perceptions of hiring managers, the use of evidence-based decisionmaking support tools for judges, and an exploration of the benefits and challenges of participatory research for the implementation of a behavioral health study.
