CJJA Policy Library
The following policies are provided for reference and consideration. Readers should not interpret the CJJA Policy Library as an endorsement of a particular policy or as a representation of a “gold standard.” Rather, the intent of the library is to evoke discussion within your jurisdiction regarding best practices and key elements to include in policies and procedures. Jurisdictions must consider these policies in the context of their unique juvenile justice system structure; state and local mandates; risk tolerance level; and other individual needs. This page will be updated periodically as policies are submitted for review and approved by the panel.
