Please join the conversation regarding SB 823: Juvenile Justice Realignment: Office of Youth and Community Restoration. If you or someone you know works with youth, within the justice system, public safety, schools, or as a community partner your participation is vital. Please share it with your networks
This bill is essentially establishing the closure of the Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ), and shifting responsibility of these youth to their home counties. The bill would establish a Juvenile Justice Realignment Block Grant program to provide county-based custody, care, and supervision of youth who are realigned from the Division of Juvenile Justice or who would have otherwise been eligible for commitment to the division. The bill would appropriate moneys from the General Fund in specified amounts for these purposes, as specified. The bill would specify how those funds would be allocated to counties based on specified criteria.
