One organization that will be used for the discipline
The National Center for Juvenile Justice (NCJJ) is the research division in the National
Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges. The organization is located in Pittsburg and is one
of the oldest research groups that deal with juvenile justice in the United States. The organization
first conducted sub-national and national studies on crime and delinquency in 1973. NCJJ was
founded by a long-serving court judge, Honorable Maurice B. Cohill where he retired from the
federal bench in 2016. NCJJ’s board comprises a wide range of professionals from dedicated
judges, justice system professionals, providers, and researchers who inform its decision-making
and activities. NCJJ is a nonprofit organization that aims to find effective justice for families and
children through technical assistance and research. For many decades, the organization has
conducted a lot of research that has provided several factual information and objectives for
decision-makers and professionals in the family and juvenile justice system. Its success has been
seen to be due to its ability to blend practical experience and technical skills that enable making
complex research that will help provide statistical information that will help decision-makers and
juvenile justice professionals. The organization has provided delinquency status reports over the
several decades of its operations that have been helpful for delinquency programs.
Communicating with folks in juvenile criminal justice
The tips for communication with members of the juvenile criminal justice community should be
concise and clear. The highlighted tips include;
1. Be simple, but very clear and concise.
2. Put all the science and discussion in the appropriate context, not only giving the specifics.
3. Stay focused on the core message that you need to be passed. Figure out the core message
and follow it keenly. However, do not put too many details that would bring confusion.
4. Use vivid language that will help in putting across the core message.
Nydreah, I enjoyed reading this exploration of the discourse community
of the discipline you have chosen. You give the reader a vivid picture of
expectations of those in this field as they connect with each other. I like
the clarity and precision of your descriptions. Observations about
communicating are substantive and sensible. You have covered items
listed in the report. Language choices are sound. Mechanical issues
don’t mar the report significantly. My comments are found in the PDF
file. Please see the rubric for points earned and comments. Thanks for
your work here. Susan
