The Friday Wrap-up

Another Friday rolls around, and the inbox must be cleaned out.  Enjoy!

On April 24, 2013, at 4 p.m., the U.S. Departments of Justice, Education, and Health and Human Services will present a webinar “At the Intersection of School Safety and Supportive Discipline:  Navigating the Roles and Responsibilities of School Resource Officers.”  Register here.  For access to the previous four installments of the Supportive School Discipline webinar series, look here.

On May 1, 2013, at 2 p.m. Justice Detention International and the Office on Violence Against Women will present a webinar “Safe and Secure” Providing Services for Incarcerated Youth,” which will address the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) standards and other challenges of youth detainees.  Register here.  Visit the National PREA Resource Center here.

HEA 1108 has passed out of the Indiana House of Representatives and is heading to Governor Pence for signature.  This is bill that would allow children who were handled in criminal court as adults to be placed in the Indiana Department of Correction Division of Youth Services, and have the possibility of a modification of their sentence if they do well in rehabilitative services.

The Journal of Juvenile Justice, published by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) is available online here.

The National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges has an Adolescent-Based Treatment Database of treatment and screening tools, as well as a Juvenile Drug Court Information Center.

Have a restful weekend.
