Title V Delinquency Prevention Program

Title V focuses on reducing risks and enhancing protective factors to prevent youth at risk of becoming delinquent from entering the juvenile justice system and to intervene with first-time and nonserious offenders to keep them out of the juvenile justice system.

The program?s goal is to increase
the availability and types of prevention programs to improve juvenile justice systems (Section 504(a) of the JJDP Act).

The objective of the program is to support both state and local prevention efforts.

Each year, state grantees will provide information that OJJDP will include in its annual Title V report to Congress (Section 503(4) of the JJDP Act).

Agency - Department of Justice

The Department of Justice enforces the law and defends the interest of the United States, ensuring public safety against threats foreign and domestic; providing Federal leadership in preventing and controlling crime; seeking just punishment for those guilty of unlawful pursuits; and ensuring fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans.
