The aim of these projects is to reduce youth offending, particularly violent offending, in five high need areas: Northland, Auckland City, Counties Manukau (South Auckland), Hastings and Christchurch. Sites were selected according to the incidence and rate of youth and/or violent offending and high levels of social and economic deprivation. A brief description of each project is provided below.

Extractions: In Ontario, 145 organizations have received $8,589,862 through the National Crime Prevention Strategy to support their efforts to tackle the root causes of crime and victimization. The National Strategy is a fundamental component of the Government of Canada's commitment to reduce crime and victimization and continue building a nation of safer homes and streets. It is part of a multi-faceted public safety agenda, led by the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada and the Solicitor General of Canada, that balances a vigorous response to crime with a determined attack on its root causes. The Strategy works together with citizens, communities, municipalities, all provincial and territorial governments as well as other partners. The Strategy is built on the common sense principle that the best way to reduce crime is to focus on the factors that put individuals at risk - factors such as family violence, school problems, and drug abuse. The National Strategy helps communities by providing the tools, knowledge and supports they need to deal with these factors.
Extractions: Good morning! Im delighted to be here and am thrilled to see all of you young, enthusiastic people who have made a commitment to preventing violence in your schools and communities. And the Justice Department is pleased to be a partner with Youth Crime Watch of America dedicating $3 million to the work that you do, through our Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. As Attorney General John Ashcroft said recently, Young people may make up 25 percent of our population, but they make up 100 percent of our future. From where Im standing, looking out at all of you, our future looks very bright, indeed! At the Department of Justice, we believe that young people not only can, but also should be part of the solution in addressing violence in our schools and communities. As youve shown through your work with Youth Crime Watch of America, young people are an incredible source of knowledge, energy, and talent. And we know that many young people today, like you, are concerned about crime and would like to take action. In 1997, our Office of Juvenile Justice conducted a survey of over 2,000 middle and high school students. In that survey, 46 percent of the young people said they had made at least one change in their daily routine because they were concerned about personal safety, crime, and violence in their communities. And 86 percent of the teens surveyed said they would be willing to participate in community crime prevention efforts if they only knew what to do. And all this was before 9/11/01.

Extractions: State Level Youth Initiatives Several state agencies collaborated to support the Iowa Youth Survey, a triennial survey of Iowa youth in 6th, 8th and 11th grades. This comprehensive survey was administered by the Department of Public Health through a grant to the Iowa Consortium for Substance Abuse Research and Evaluation. More than 85,000 Iowa students completed the survey in October and November 1999. Statewide and county-level results are available on the internet at http://www.state.ia.us/dhr/cjjp/ythsurvey.html ". The survey results provide extensive data on the attitudes and behaviors of Iowa youth and are a valuable source of information for the state and communities. Other geographical breakdowns of the data available include: Decategorization regions; Judicial Districts; Area Education Agencies; Department of Human Services; and Substance Abuse Treatment and Prevention regions. Iowa was recently selected as one of six states to participate in a new initiative of the National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) to examine and support state level activities to embed prevention in state policies. This initiative is designed to promote a more preventative or youth development orientation to youth issues, with a particular focus on comprehensive, community-based crime reduction initiatives. The NCPC, through anticipated funding from the David and Lucille Packard Foundation, will work with the six pilot states to help support and sustain these locally developed prevention efforts.

Extractions: DEPARTMENT OF JUVENILE JUSTICE AND DELINQUENCY PREVENTION ANNUAL REPORT ANNOUNCES ADVANCES IN JUDICIAL DISTRICT 12 Raleigh, NC - North Carolina credits a 2.6% statewide drop in juvenile crime to the continued work of the local Juvenile Crime Prevention Councils. Figures released in the North Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention 2002 Annual Report also reflect a statewide juvenile delinquency rate of 34.61 per 1,000 juveniles. "Our Juvenile Crime Prevention Councils are making a difference in this State," remarked DJJDP Secretary George L. Sweat. "They are charged with developing a comprehensive juvenile justice plan in their counties and we are seeing good results from their plans. In fact, our state has been cited as a national model in this effort." Locally, Cumberland County's juvenile delinquency rate ranked above the state average, but DJJDP in cooperation with the Cumberland County Juvenile Crime Prevention Council continues to make significant progress in addressing and combating juvenile crime. In strong partnership with the county commissioners, county manager's office, local law enforcement, the school system, and an array of public and private agencies, the Juvenile Crime Prevention Council has built a continuum of services that work effectively toward reducing juvenile misbehavior throughout the county. Juvenile Court Counselors are directly involved in the community giving talks in the schools and colleges

Extractions: In 1996, about 4.9 % of youth aged 12-17 were charged with Criminal Code offences. Since the 1984 Act, youths apprehended by the police are far more likely to be referred to the courts. While falling 3.6 % in 1996, Criminal Code offences by youth remain 9 % higher than in 1991 and 121 % higher than in 1986. Youth crimes are predominately committed by males, who accounted for 80 % of the youth court caseload in 1996. The percentage of female offenders before the courts has risen from 18 % in 1992-93 to 20 % in 1995-96. Most crimes committed by youth are not violent. While the number of violent offences is small compared to other offences, the proportion of violent crime has been increasing, largely due to an increase in minor assaults. There was, however, a decline in violent crime by youth in 1996. A recent Calgary study revealed that although persistent offenders represented only 3.2 % of the total number of young offenders, they were involved in 14.1 % of criminal occurrences.

Juvenile Crime and Delinquency Prevention Programs and Principles Policy Printer-friendly Version 6.1 Youth Violence and Delinquency Prevention The nation's Governors believe that combating youth delinquency and violence requires the development and implementation of programs and policies that prevent delinquency, eliminate the presence of violence wherever children congregate, and ensure strong punishment for those responsible for exposing young people to delinquency, drugs, and violence. 6.1.2 Prevention and Early Intervention. The first line of defense against youth violence is the establishment of comprehensive services and programs for at-risk children and their families. Success in school and in life requires that children be prepared when their regular schooling begins. These services and programs should be designed to reach out and respond to children and youth from infancy to adulthood. Early prevention through programs that build self-esteem through achievement of worthwhile goals and offer an alternative to violent and criminal activity is critical to the successful reduction of crime, violence, and gang activities in our neighborhoods. Effective measures may include, but are not limited to:
