The National Center for Juvenile Justice recently launched a new juvenile justice reform tracking tool. The Juvenile Justice GPS website provides information about state laws and practices regarding juvenile justice issues as well as state and national statistics on this topic.
The resource will be rolled out in six sections. Currently, they have launched their section on jurisdictional boundaries, which provides information about laws regarding the transfer of juveniles to adult criminal court. Two other sections will launched this summer covering juvenile defense issues as well as the integration of juvenile justice and child protection systems. Eventually, the resource will also include information regarding racial/ethnic fairness and status offense issues.
