"The goals of this project were to evaluate the impact of juvenile sex offender registration and notification policies on first-time sexual offenses (general deterrence; Goal 1), sexual and violent recidivism offenses (specific deterrence; Goal 2), and on juvenile case processing including case dismissals, diversions, and plea bargains (Goal 3). Previous research has failed to support general or specific deterrent effects but has linked juvenile registration policies to unintended increases in case dismissals, diversions, and plea bargains. We aimed to replicate these findings. To date, we have addressed Goal 1 by evaluating the general deterrent effects of six states' juvenile registration policies, Oregon, Maryland, Idaho, South Carolina, Utah, and Virginia. In no case was any state's policy associated with a general deterrent effect, thus replicating the existing research. We continue to pursue the remaining goals of this project. However, in light of the fact that no published study has identified any community safety benefit of juvenile registration and that several published studies have identifed unintended policy effects on juvenile case processing and on children subjected to registration and/or notification requirements, we recommend that juvenile registratioin and notification policies be replaced with more effective approaches to the prevention of juvenile sexual offending."--PDF Abstract.

"In April 2003, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Mexico’s Secretaría de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales (SEMARNAT) initiated the third bi-national agreement to protect the environment and public health in their shared border region through the signing of the United States-Mexico Environmental Program: Border 2012. Over the past ten years, the Border 2012 program has brought together federal, state, and local governments; United States border tribes; Mexico’s indigenous communities; and stakeholders and border communities of both countries, to address the most pressing environmental issues along our shared border. Through the Border 2012 Program, we have promoted and fostered a strong bi-national partnership that has allowed us to achieve concrete and measurable results and adopt an effective bottom up approach for decision making and priority setting. The Border 2012 Program has also been instrumental in developing and strengthening the capacity of border communities to become more sustainable and to better address environmental and public health issues. We are very proud of the achievements made in protecting and improving environmental conditions for millions of residents along the United States-Mexico border, which could not have been possible without the support and commitment of all of our partners. As National Program Coordinators, we acknowledge and celebrate your work, dedication, and commitment, which has been an essential ingredient in the successful accomplishment of our ambitious goals and objectives. This report highlights key results achieved in the past two years and is also the last report of the Border 2012 Program, which reaches its conclusion this year. Though we are closing the Program, we are excited about the new bi-national border program, Border 2020, which was developed through extensive public input and participation. The new Program, signed in mid-2012, will continue the long standing collaboration and cooperation among the United States and Mexico to improve the environment in our shared border region."--Message from the national coordinators.
