OJP is committed to advancing work that promotes civil rights and racial equity, increases access to justice, supports crime victims and individuals impacted by the justice system, strengthens community safety and protects the public from crime and evolving threats, and builds trust between law enforcement
and the community.
OJJDP envisions a nation where our children are free from crime and violence.
If children encounter the justice system, the contact should be rare, fair, and beneficial to them.
The Juvenile Justice System Reform and Reinvestment Initiative will support states’ implementation of innovative and/or research-based, data-informed recidivism-reduction policies, practices, and programs across multiple juvenile justice system components and disciplines.
The justice reinvestment framework requires that states develop and implement sustainable strategies for reinvesting costs saved or averted as the result of these system improvements into proven effective juvenile justice prevention and intervention programs.
