Getting Tough on Juvenile Crime: A Paradigm Shift for Juvenile Justice?

Publication year: 1998  |  Cataloged on: Dec 09, 2011

This article, from a special issue of OJJDP's journal, Juvenile Justice, covers a workshop at OJJDP's 1996 national conference, "Juvenile Justice at the Crossroads". The workshop reviewed state reactions to public concern over violent juvenile crime, through passage of punitive laws reflecting a shift in public policy. It also covered federal legislation in the 104th Congress that affected juvenile justice; changes in State law governing juvenile transfer to criminal court; initiatives focused on the "balanced and restorative justice" approach to juvenile accountability; and various efforts of U.S. Attorneys to address gangs, guns, and drugs.
