Overview

Each day at 26 facilities and 92 court services offices, more than 4,000 DJJ employees work diligently to provide a safe, secure environment for juvenile offenders. These dedicated public servants also are committed to giving youth in DJJ custody the tools and opportunities they need so they will be inspired to take control of their own futures and make lasting, positive changes in their lives.

DJJ's Division of Community Services has four regions and 11 districts which oversee the management of all DJJ secure facilities and court service offices.

DJJ operates both short and long term facilities for youth awaiting trial or who have been committed to DJJ custody by the Juvenile Courts. Regional Youth Detention Centers (RYDCs) are secure short-term centers for youths awaiting trial in Juvenile or Superior Court, or awaiting a community-based placement elsewhere more suitable for his/her needs. Youth Development Campuses (YDCs) are long-term rehabilitation facilities for youth sentenced or committed to DJJ custody by juvenile courts.
