Palm Beach County School Safety and Student Performance Partnership Research Project: Final Research Report
NIJ is seeking applications for the funding to maintain and enhance the National Juvenile Justice Data Analysis Program to ensure that vital statistical information is available to the field regarding juvenile risk behaviors, juvenile victimization and offending, and the juvenile justice system response to law-violating behavior. These important data inform juvenile justice policy and practice at the federal, state, and local levels.
