Making the right decisions for young people who come into contact with the juvenile justice system has critical importance not only for those young people, but for families and communities. In juvenile justice, there are many decision points, every one of which represents an opportunity gained or lost for youth well-being and public safety. NCCD helps agency decision makers and staff in making decisions that improve outcomes for youth and the community.
