Juvenile Accountability Block Grant (JABG) Risk Assessment Enhancement Project

Status: complete

This project was a continuation of the Oregon Juvenile Crime Prevention Risk Screen/Assessment project. After conducting reliability and validity testing of the OJCP risk tool, NPC was contracted to suggest revisions to the tool and implement those revisions. The implementation included dissemination of revised tools to juvenile departments and other community partners, associated training and technical assistance in use of the tool, revisions to the database and data management system, and integration of the tool and process into the Juvenile Crime Prevention evaluation.
