Bookmark and Share Report Misuse or Glitches


The National Council on Crime and Delinquency (NCCD) was funded by the Jessie Ball duPont Fund to conduct an independent research study of girls in the Florida juvenile justice system. This research describes the risks and needs of girls in the juvenile justice system and identifies the essential set of services and policy initiatives critical to responding to their needs. In addition to the quantitative results, this report personalizes the plight of these girls through their stories and also details the ideas of many staff who work with girls in juvenile justice programs across the state.
