Youth Services Commission
Youth Services Commissions are mandated by the NJ Juvenile Justice Commission to serve in each county as a juvenile justice planning body.
The Union County Youth Services Commission provides funding to community-based organizations and county agencies to improve services to youth involved or at-risk of involvement in the juvenile justice system, including those youth re-entering the community following incarceration.
Union County Juvenile Expediting Team
UJET was established by the Division of Youth Services in 2004 to provide case management services with recommendations to the family court to make the most efficient use of secure detention and shelter placements. Volunteer members include local service providers, state agency representatives, family court personnel and juvenile justice stakeholders.
UJET was recipient of the national Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Award for Best Practices Model in 2008.
