OJJDP Releases Report of Family Listening Sessions on Juvenile Justice

In 2011, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) and the Campaign for Youth Justice convened four listening sessions involving families and youth who have had direct experiences with the juvenile justice system at the local or state levels. This report summarizes the participants' experiences and their recommendations for reform. The listening sessions provide OJJDP, state juvenile justice agencies, and other stakeholders with a greater understanding of the challenges families face when their child becomes involved in the juvenile or criminal justice systems
