Juvenile Crime Prevention Council

The Department of Juvenile Justice & Delinquency Prevention (DJJDP) collaborates with the Juvenile Crime Prevention Councils (JCPC) in each county to galvanize community leaders, locally and statewide, to reduce, and prevent juvenile crime. JCPC board members are appointed by the Board of Commissioners and meet at least bi-monthly in each county. The meetings are open to the public, and all business is considered public information. DJJDP allocates millions of dollars to these councils annually, in which funding is used to subsidize local programs and services.

Responsibilities:

  • Review the needs of juveniles in the County, who are at risk of delinquency or who have been adjudicated, undisciplined, or delinquent.
  • Review the resources available to address those needs.
  • Prioritize community risk factors & determine the services needed to address those problem areas.
  • Develop a request for proposal for services in need.
  • Submit a written funding plan to the County Commissioners for approval.
  • Increase public awareness of the causes of delinquency and strategies to reduce the problems.
  • Develop strategies to intervene, respond to, and treat the needs of juveniles at risk of delinquency.
