Omaha Gets $724,070 grant to track juvenile delinquents

(OMAHA, Neb.) -- The Omaha City Council accepted a $724,070 grant from a state commission Tuesday to help the Police Department, the Omaha School District and other entities do a better job of monitoring juvenile delinquents.

The grant will enable the city, Douglas County and criminal-justice agencies to develop a system in which information about violent juvenile offenders can be shared.

In addition to the school district and the Police Department, entities that would have access to the information include the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, probation offices and various courts.

The grant also will help local juvenile-justice agencies develop a standard method of assessing a troubled child's needs as well as prospects of getting into worse trouble.

The grant will be provided by the Nebraska Commission on Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice. (iSyndicate; Omaha World-Herald; Nov. 15, 2000). Terms and Conditions: Copyright(c) 2000 LEXIS-NEXIS, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights Reserved.
