The Union County Prosecutor’s Office Juvenile Unit is responsible for prosecuting juveniles for acts ranging from violations of township ordinances to serious violent crimes. The goals of the Unit are to promote swift and appropriate punishment for repeat violent offenders and to divert minor offenders away from delinquency and further court action.

The Unit also provides daily legal advice to the 22 juvenile bureaus within Union County. The supervising assistant prosecutor is a member and officer of numerous county initiatives regarding juveniles, including but not limited to the Juvenile Officers Association, the Juvenile Detention Alternative Initiative, the Youth Services Commission, and the Subcommittee on Disparate Minority Contacts.
