Bridging Research and Practice Project to Advance Juvenile Justice and Safety

The Bridging Research and Practice Project to Advance Juvenile Justice and Safety, or Bridge Project, translates juvenile justice research into innovative products and dissemination strategies that drive changes in policies and practice. In the first phase of the project, Urban researchers partnered with juvenile justice professionals to identify areas in which credible research findings have not been integrated into policy and practice. The second phase focuses on bridging research and practice in youth probation to help probation agencies align their administrative and frontline practices with research. The project’s practitioner-oriented products summarize lessons in accessible formats, and its implementation products address considerations for probation administrators and supervisors. Bridge Project products will be added to this page as they become available. For more information on the Bridge Project, see the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Bridging Research and Practice Project to Advance Juvenile Justice and Safety web page.
