OJJDP releases guide to ‘best practices’

OJJDP released a 12-page bulletin called “Best Practices in Juvenile Accountability: Overview” that provides an overview of the JAIBG program.

The bulletin reviews the developmental perspective shaping juvenile accountability and offers case histories illustrating effective practices that promote accountability.

The bulletin also highlights information provided by the other bulletins in the series to enhance the reader’s understanding of each of the 12 JAIBG program purpose areas and includes a bibliography of key references from the series to supplement that understanding.
