ABSTRACT

Enhancing Prosecutors' Ability to Combat and Prevent Juvenile Crime in Their Jurisdictions   [open pdf - 241KB]

"Seeking to curb crime and protect citizens by holding delinquent youth accountable for their offenses, Congress enacted the Juvenile Accountability Incentive Block Grants (JAIBG) program. This Bulletin features two of the three JAIBG purpose areas that focus on enhancing the ability of prosecutors to address juvenile crime by providing funding for (1) hiring additional prosecutors and (2) acquiring technology, equipment, and training. The Bulletin provides recommendations for the effective use of additional prosecutors and the use of technology to increase efficiency in the juvenile justice system. To combat and prevent juvenile crime, prosecutors require information that offers a range of responses. This Bulletin and its JAIBG companion, 'Enabling Prosecutors To Address Drug, Gang, and Youth Violence', provide some of that crucial information."
