JJS Special Programs

In August 2013, the Children, Youth and Families Department (CYFD) implemented a reorganization which aligned the Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative, Juvenile Community Corrections, Detention Compliance Certification, and the Juvenile Justice Advisory Units under the umbrella of the Special Programs Unit. This unit falls under the Juvenile Justice/Field Services Division of CYFD.
