Law enforcement plays a critical role in the juvenile justice system at both the local response and the national policy level. To enhance law enforcement’s role in juvenile justice system issues and impact the lives of youth, the IACP is pleased to announce a new partnership with the MacArthur Foundation. Together, the IACP and
the MacArthur Foundation will work to promote solutions through the Law Enforcement’s Leadership Role in the Advancement of Promising Practices in Juvenile Justice project.
The multiyear project will include a nationwide survey, a national policy symposium, and the development and testing of a national training curriculum. Each component of the project will be focused on the potential for police leaders to achieve a stronger role in juvenile justice system issues and to bring evidence-based research findings and practices to the field of law enforcement, accelerating progress toward more successful outcomes for youth, families, and communities.
