The National Center for Juvenile Justice, founded in 1973, is the Research Division of the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges. It is the only independent research organization that focuses exclusively on juvenile justice issues, with the mission of strengthening the effectiveness of juvenile and family justice systems and improving the quality of justice for children and families. NCJJ analyzes data on young people as victims and offenders, evaluates juvenile justice procedures and interventions, and conducts cross-cutting assessments of state laws that affect children and adolescents. NCJJ works primarily with state juvenile justice agencies and local juvenile courts and probation departments.
