Celebrating 40 Years of Working Together for Youth Justice and Safety

On September 7, 1974, the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act was signed into law. This landmark legislation established the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention and forever changed the way states and communities deal with youth who are at risk and youth who are involved in the juvenile justice system. Learn more about the JJDP Act. Watch Administrator Robert L. Listenbee’s video message on the 40th Anniversary of the JJDP Act.

Our Vision
OJJDP envisions a nation where our children are healthy, educated, and free from violence. If they come into contact with the juvenile justice system, the contact should be rare, fair, and beneficial to them.
