Contents: The National Council on Crime and Delinquency (NCCD), founded in 1907, works with federal, state, and local child welfare agencies to reduce abuse and neglect, and to support the needs of children and youth in the criminal justice system. On their website the "what's new" section contains press releases and official statements on issues such as gun violence in schools and racial disparities in the juvenile justice system; "policy perspectives" on the death penalty, children and gun violence, race, special issues for incarcerated women and girls. A lengthy annotated bibliography lists the NCCD's publications for sale (most for $3-5), which deal with drug enforcement, prisons and sentencing, and criminal justice topics as well as child welfare. A subsection of the site is devoted to the Center's Children's Research Center, which offers child protective agencies risk-assessment tools and decision-making models.
