Comprehensive Juvenile Justice in State Legislatures February 1998

Broadcast Overview 
The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) introduces the newest addition to its satellite teleconference videotape series, "Comprehensive Juvenile Justice in State Legislatures." 

Conducted by the National Conference of State Legislatures on February 24, 1998, with funding from OJJDP, the teleconference examined the critical components of comprehensive juvenile justice in State legislatures. The teleconference focused on the concerns and strategies of State legislators in developing effective juvenile justice policy and highlighted State legislative action, research findings, and promising programs that contribute to a comprehensive juvenile justice system. Panels consisting of State lawmakers and national experts participated in live question-and-answer segments with teleconference participants. 

While the teleconference focused primarily on legislative initiatives, it also addressed important issues for State and local juvenile justice agency representatives, judges, law enforcement officials, juvenile probation officers, prosecutors, attorneys, treatment providers, and other Federal, State, and local leaders who are facing the challenge of meeting the needs of today's youth while planning for the youth of tomorrow. 

"Comprehensive Juvenile Justice in State Legislatures" (NCJ 169593) is available from the Juvenile Justice Clearinghouse (JJC). The VHS-format videotape runs approximately 1 hour and 35 minutes.
