Monograph One: Program Development and Future Initiatives

March 1, 2003

The Monograph describes lessons learned from the Juvenile Sanctions Center’s initial months of implementation and operation. It details the approach and offers guidelines and recommendations to the field of juvenile justice for jurisdictions considering replication of the Juvenile Sanctions Center’s process in establishing a continuum of care for juvenile offenders in a graduated sanctioning program through the establishment of 10 Demonstration Sites. It highlights the process of helping community-based teams identify gaps in services, but moreover, how to close these gaps with proper training and technical assistance.
