Juvenile Justice Research

Juvenile Justice Research

Through research and evaluation, the juvenile justice field has identified a set of policies and practices for lower-level offenders that costs far less than secure facilities and is effective at putting them on a path to productive citizenship. The public safety performance project conducts and publishes research that shines a spotlight on these evidence-based approaches and helps inform policymakers seeking better results from their juvenile justice systems.
