National Council on Crime and Delinquency Announces The 2006 PASS Awards

    OAKLAND, Calif., March 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National
 Council on Crime and Delinquency is pleased to announce the 2006 winners of
 its respected PASS Awards (Prevention for a Safer Society). NCCD honors the
 media's success and vital role in illuminating the people and programs that
 illuminate the root causes of crime and that promise to protect our most
 precious resource -- our youth -- against involvement in crime.
     A critical link in successful policies related to youth and justice is
 the education of the public. The media is uniquely positioned to be this
 link, and we gratefully acknowledge their efforts to fulfill that
 responsibility. Each year the PASS Awards go to media professionals in the
 fields of print, literature, broadcast media, television, and film in
 recognition of thoughtful and factual coverage of the issues. Special
 consideration is given to those stories that highlight solutions to
 criminal and juvenile justice and child welfare problems.
     NCCD is the nation's oldest private organization working to attain
 responsive and effective criminal justice, juvenile justice, and child
 welfare systems. For 100 years, NCCD has been committed to promoting
 criminal justice strategies that are fair, humane, cost-effective, and
 uncompromising in public safety. The issues that have defined NCCD since
 its inception are the need for a separate and humane justice system for
 children, alternatives to incarceration, and the integral connection
 between social justice and public safety.
