"Among the many newsletters, research bulletins, and program briefs that find their way onto my desk, I view Juvenile Justice Update to be the most current, substantive, and topically appropriate.  I make a point to read each issue cover-to-cover and never fail to find that I've learned something new and relevant to my professional activities."
—Professor Troy L. Armstrong, California State University at Sacramento
