Juvenile Justice Advisory Committee

 

ABOUT THE JUVENILE JUSTICE ADVISORY COMMITTEE (JJAC)

 

Background

The Juvenile Justice Advisory Committee was established to provide a forum for juvenile justice policy reform built upon validated, data-driven criteria, objective analysis, collaboration among stakeholders and consensus decision-making. Members include local, state, and federal juvenile justice leaders, government officials, and community partners. The JJAC seeks to develop programs, strategies and recommendations that are consistent with the Kentucky Revised Statutes, core requirements of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDP), core strategies of the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Juvenile Detention Alternative Initiative (JDAI), and the reduction of Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC) throughout the juvenile justice system.

The Louisville, Kentucky Metro Criminal Justice Commission engaged Health Benefits ABCs (HBABCs) in early 2017 to conduct a gap analysis of programs serving justice involved youth in the Louisville community. This analysis was undertaken in conjunction with a community asset mapping initiative being conducted on behalf of the Louisville Promise Cabinet. The overarching goal of the asset mapping initiative is to identify and align cross-government, private, and non-profit community services to support the needs of children and young adults being served by Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) as a stepping stone to post-secondary educational and career opportunities.To view the full report click here
