Enhancing Prosecutors' Ability To Combat and Prevent Juvenile Crime in Their Jurisdictions
(NCJ 178916) December 1999
OJJDP Juvenile Accountability Block Grants Series, Bulletin, 20 page(s)
Gramckow, H. P., Tompkins, E.
 
Features two of the three Juvenile Accountability Block Grants (JABG) program purpose areas that focus on enhancing the ability of prosecutors to address juvenile crime. The role of a prosecutor is not just enforcing the law but also caring for the community. Success in both roles often can be achieved only through coordinated prevention and intervention efforts. This OJJDP Bulletin, part of a series of Bulletins on the JABG program, recommends how to fulfill the prosecutor-specific purpose areas 4 (hiring additional prosecutors) and 6 (acquiring technology, equipment, and training to assist prosecutors).
