Juvenile Justice Coordinating Council (JJCC)
In September of 2020, Senate Bill 823 was signed into law and initiated the closure process of the California Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) and shifted those resources to counties to supervise and deliver services to youth locally. Senate Bill 823 tasked each county with the responsibility of creating a local DJJ Realignment Plan.
The Glenn County Juvenile Justice Coordinating Council (JJCC) is responsible for establishing the Juvenile Justice Realignment Block Grant Subcommittee, which is responsible for the development of Glenn County's SB 823 Juvenile Justice Realignment Block Grant Plan. Additionally, a requirement for at least three community members to participate on the subcommittee was added (Welfare & Institutions Code 1995(a)(b)).
Community members interested in participating on the subcommittee are encouraged to contact Chief Probation Officer Brandon Thompson at (530) 934-6672, or by attending the next regular JJCC meeting on September 23, 2021, at 2:30 PM in the Glenn County Jail conference room. To be eligible for nomination to the subcommittee, prospective members must fall into one of the three categories:
1. Experience providing community-based youth services.
2. Youth justice advocates with expertise/knowledge of the juvenile justice system.
3. Directly involved in the juvenile justice system.
