Charles Puzzanchera from the National Center for Juvenile Justice (NCJJ) recently designed and implemented a new OJJDP/NIJ fact sheet titled Trends in Youth Arrests for Violent Crimes. The publication was accomplished under the direction of Charles Puzzanchera as well as information provided by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) and the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), Department of Justice programs. This informative OJJDP/NIJ fact sheet was sent through the 08/23/2022 Department of Justice bulletin and was distributed to all of their subscribers.
The goal of the OJJDP/NIJ fact sheet was to provide a visually appealing document which highlights how violent crimes for youth arrests has dropped in comparison to previous decades. To read more about their findings and to read the bulletin provided by the DOJ, please click the links below.
