WASHINGTON, DC (February 13, 2013) -- Today, the National Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Coalition (NJJDPC) released "Promoting Safe Communities: Recommendations to the Obama Administration" calling on the Administration to restore an effective system of juvenile justice for our youth by focusing on the following five priority areas:

1. Restore Federal Leadership in Juvenile Justice Policy;
2. Support and Prioritize Prevention, Early Intervention, and Diversion Strategies;
3. Ensure Safety and Fairness for Court-Involved Youth;
4. Remove Youth from the Adult Criminal Justice System;
5. Support Youth Reentry.
