Is your jurisdiction looking to adopt evidenced-based programs to better serve juvenile justice youth? Are you a provider looking to improve agency buy-in towards the evidence-based services you provide? Are you interested in learning how other jurisdictions implemented evidence-based services? Please join CJJ and the National Juvenile Justice Network (NJJN) for a webinar on "Implementing Evidence-Based Services” on September 17 at 2:00pm ET.
This webinar will explain how jurisdictions and providers can successfully implement evidenced-based services in their juvenile justice system.

Civil Citations in Juvenile Justice: An Alternative to Punitive Sanctions
September 22, 2014
Are you looking for a non-punitive approach to serving low-risk youth in the juvenile justice system? Are you interested in learning how to reduce costs and keep young people out of the juvenile justice system?
Please join the State Training and Technical Assistance Center (STTAC) for a webinar on “Civil Citations in Juvenile Justice: An Alternative to Punitive Sanctions” on September 22 at 3:00pm ET.
This webinar will describe the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice civil citation initiative and its enabling statute and operational processes. This webinar will also explain the research behind Florida’s civil citation initiative. Participants will learn how implementation barriers can be overcome so that a civil citation initiative increases public safety, improves youth outcomes, and reduces costs. Participants will walk away with a better understanding of how a civil citation model plan could be replicated in other jurisdictions.
