What are your agency strengths in responding to youth crime, delinquency, and victimization? What areas need improvement? Could your agency benefit from implementing a Youth Focused Policing strategy? Assess your agency’s current state of policy and practice in prevention and response strategies to reduce juvenile offending, reoffending and victimization with the Youth Focused Policing Agency Self-Assessment. This new IACP resource, supported by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice, aims to assist law enforcement agencies in early identification of trends, resources, and community partnerships that may be helpful in identifying best practice responses to improving the safety and well-being of youth in their communities.
Upon completion, your agency may discover opportunities that can serve as the foundation of an action plan to implement new or enhance existing strategies that improve capacity to respond to youth crime, delinquency, and victimization.
