Today in Juvenile Justice: Administrator Update

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), headed by Administrator Liz Ryan was established by the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act to support local and state efforts to prevent delinquency and improve juvenile justice systems.
