The Federal Advisory Committee on Juvenile Justice (FACJJ) commenced in 2004 and was charged with the responsibility of annually providing advice to the President and the Congress regarding State perspectives on legislation pertaining to juvenile justice and delinquency prevention and advice on the operation of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). The membership FACJJ is composed of one representative from each State and territory and the District of Columbia.
On behalf of FACJJ, I am pleased to present the 2008 Annual Report, which addresses major issues currently facing our Nation’s juvenile justice system. Paramount among its concerns, FACJJ strong urges the passage of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Reauthorization Act of 2008.
