Launch of IACP’s Youth-Focused Policing Resource Center

The International Association of Chiefs of Police in partnership with the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention has launched the Youth-focused Policing Resource Center.

The Youth-focused Policing Resource Center provides law enforcement with:

  • a clearinghouse of information and resources relating to youth crime, delinquency and victimization;
  • a searchable directory of law enforcement programs and services for youth from across the nation;
  • training and technical assistance available in the area of juvenile justice;
  • information on IACP’s projects and resources including the Youth Focused Policing Pilot Cities Initiative;
  • a secure discussion forum to share information, obtain resources, seek and provide mentoring as well as exchange ideas; and
  • a searchable resource library of no-cost tools including sample documents from law enforcement programs for youth such as brochures, applications, program flyers, evaluation/review templates, policies and procedures.
