The Department of Juvenile Justice & Delinquency Prevention (DJJDP) collaborates with the Juvenile Crime Prevention Councils (JCPC) in each county to galvanize community leaders, locally and statewide, to reduce, and prevent juvenile crime. JCPC board members are appointed by the Board of Commissioners and meet at least bi-monthly in each county. The meetings are open to the public, and all business is considered public information. DJJDP allocates millions of dollars to these councils annually, in which funding is used to subsidize local programs and services.
