Juvenile Justice Commission Points Of Intervention Definitions

Each of the programs in the Union County Youth Services Commission Continuum of Care has a specific goal.

To prevent youth from engaging in anti-social and delinquent behavior and from taking part in other problem behaviors that are pathways to delinquency.

To provide services and/or informal sanctions to youth who have begun to engage in anti-social and low level delinquent behavior in an effort to prevent youth from continuing on a delinquent pathway.

Detention/Detention Alternative
To ensure youth’s presence at court hearings and to provide short term (45-60 days) supervision sufficient to safely maintain appropriate youth in the community while awaiting the final disposition of their case.

To provide the court with a range of options that match the supervision and service needs of youth in their communities to reduce recidivism.

To provide youth transitioning from JJC residential programs and youth returning from secure facilities with additional support for successful reintegration into their communities to reduce recidivism.
