The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention began and continued the following programs in 1984: the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the Habitual Serious Offender/Drug Involved Program, and the Violent Juvenile Offender Program. The Office of Justice Assistance, Research, and Statistics continued working to improve the treatment of crime victims, notably victims of family violence; to promote crime prevention programs; and to manage Federal assistance programs.
