Delinquency and Court Services Division (DCSD) was awarded the Juvenile Justice Reform and Reinvestment Initiative (JJRRI) demonstration grant 2012 through 2015, which was extended through 2016. Milwaukee County was unique in that it was only county awarded the grant due to the intricacies of our juvenile justice system; whereas the entire states of Iowa and Delaware were the remaining awardees. The grant is a partnership between the Federal Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), The Center for Juvenile Justice Reform – Georgetown Public Policy Institute, Georgetown University, Urban Institute and Vanderbilt University – Peabody Research Institute.
The purpose of this grant involves the ability to effectively assess the structure of programming and service-delivery within the juvenile justice system as it relates to the operational and decision-making processes used with youth involved in the juvenile justice system. With the technical assistance provided by the grant, Milwaukee County is able to realign its dispositional process, realign the services provided to youth, consider reinvestment of resources based on service effectiveness and apply the Standardized Program Evaluation Protocol (SPEP) to services with our contracted providers in our network.
