Juvenile Justice Coordinating Council (JJCC)

The Juvenile Justice Coordinating Council (JJCC) will advise the Board of Supervisors on the development and implementation of a multi-agency juvenile justice plan composed of several critical parts, including, but not limited to an assessment of existing law enforcement, probation, education, mental health, health, social services, drug and alcohol and youth services resources which specifically target at-risk juveniles, juvenile offenders, and their families; an identification and prioritization of the neighborhoods, schools, and other areas in the community that face a significant public safety risk from juvenile crime. The Council will also coordinate on a countywide basis the work of those governmental and non-governmental organizations engaged in activities designed to reduce the incidence of juvenile crime and delinquency in the greater community, develop information and intelligence-sharing systems to ensure that county actions are fully coordinated, and provide data and appropriate outcome measures.
