Thank you, Maureen [Henneberg], for that kind introduction. It’s my privilege to welcome all of you to the Department of Justice, and to join Maureen and Eileen as we recognize these extraordinary honorees. I want to thank the leadership and staff of our Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), who organize this event every year. They’ve done an outstanding job again this year, and I’m grateful for all they do, every day, to keep our children safe.
