A part of the U.S. Department of Justice, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) provides research, funding, and statistics on this important corner of the justice system in the United States. On its homepage, visitors can look over sections that include Topics, Funding, Programs, State Contacts, and Statistics. In this last area, visitors can explore the office’s statistical briefing book for information on juvenile populations, along with information on the demographics of youth in residential placement. In Publications, visitors can view all recently published reports in list form, or can easily search for specific publications, such as "Delays in Youth Justice" and "Young Offenders: What Happens and What Should Happen.” Moving on, the Tools area contains links for criminal justice students, information on their performance measures, and funding information.
