The Los Angeles County Delinquency Prevention Pilot (DPP) describes successes and challenges related to implementation, serves as a first step in evaluating the effectiveness of the program to reduce delinquency over time, and offers recommendations for improving implementation of a delinquency prevention model in Los Angeles County and other sites. Also, National Council on Crime and Delinquency (NCCD) recommended that the county work to ensure that all eligible youth were enrolled moving forward and that workers track the reasons why some high-risk youth were not enrolled and given the services described in the DPP practice model.
