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.
A component of the Office of Justice Programs within the U.S. Department of Justice, OJJDP works to prevent and respond to youth delinquency and protect children.
In support of OJJDP's vision and mission, Administrator Ryan will hold monthly calls with stakeholders. During these calls, Administrator Ryan will update the field about OJJDP programs and initiatives and current activities. These brief calls are geared toward OJJDP stakeholders, including grantees, youth justice advocates, criminal and juvenile justice professionals, law enforcement officials, prosecutors and youth defenders, and other individuals interested in youth justice issues.
The calls will last from 3 to 5 minutes.
Participants will not be able to ask questions during the call, but we encourage participants to email your juvenile justice related questions to [email protected]. The calls will be recorded and posted below.
The next Administrator's call is scheduled for 11 a.m. ET on December 19, 2023. This month's call will focus on the new monthly format of the OJJDP News @ a Glance newsletter, what's ahead in 2024 and the forthcoming 50th anniversary Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act.
