Welfare and Institution Code 749.22 requires each county to establish a juvenile justice coordinating council that shall develop and implement a continuum of county-based responses to juvenile crime. The coordinating council shall, at a minimum, include the Chief Probation officer, as chair, and one representative each from the District Attorney’s office, the Public Defender’s office, the Sheriff’s Department, the Board of Supervisors, the Department of Social Services, the Department of Mental Health, a community-based drug and alcohol program, a city Police Department, the County Office of Education or a school district, and an at-large community representative.
The Juvenile Justice Subcommittee has been established under Senate Bill 823, which began the closure of the state’s Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ), realigning state functions to county governments. Members of the subcommittee will assist in the development of a comprehensive long-term realignment plan to serve youth at a local level, including the identification of facilities, programming, service needs, and the allocation of grant funding.
