Juvenile Justice System
Welcome to the New Jersey Association of County Youth Services Administrators website to navigating the Juvenile Justice System in New Jersey. If you are reading this, your family is most likely involved with the juvenile justice system, or perhaps you know a family who is. We hope our website helps to address any questions or concerns that you may have. Our goal is to ensure that family members better understand the Juvenile Justice System and their rights, responsibilities, and resources available to them. It is our hope that better understanding will help families reach a more positive solution for their children, reduce recidivism and lead to greater family involvement. Consequently, families and youth will be able to better inform the system which will help reduce juvenile delinquency in our communities and have a positive impact on public safety.
