Jeff Slowikowski, the associate administrator of the demonstration programs division, will become the acting administrator for the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). He replaces outgoing Administrator J. Robert Flores, who left the agency yesterday.
Slowikowski joined OJJDP in 1990 after a graduate fellowship at the Schaefer Center for Public Policy in Baltimore. He has managed projects including the development of OJJDP's Comprehensive Strategy for Serious, Violent, and Chronic Juvenile Offenders and Pulling America's Communities Together.
Slowikowski was an auxiliary police officer with the Baltimore County Police Department for four years, where he worked in the Crime Analysis Unit and assisted staff in the development of the Baltimore Police Department's local crime report and subsequent data submissions to the FBI's Uniform Crime Report.
He will be a "supervisory official" until Jan. 21st, which is the first date that acting administrators can be named, according to OJJDP spokeswoman Kara McCarthy. Contact: (202) 307-5911, http://ojjdp.ncjrs.gov.
