The Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Reauthorization Act of 2017 extends the authorization of the 1974 statute to ensure funding for states that adhere to four key protections: deinstitutionalization of status offenders, sight and sound separation, adult jail and lockup removal, and disproportionate minority contact. In addition, this bill encourages accountability and requires states to provide information to assure compliance with the core protections. It also requires an evaluation by the Attorney General of the amount of funds that were granted to states that did not comply with the JJDPA’s requirements.
