Office of Juvenile Justice

(225) 287-7900

Under the direction of the Deputy Secretary, the Office of Juvenile Justice (OJJ) has policy oversight and support responsibilities for state programs for youth who are adjudicated delinquent, as well as any youth and their families ruled in need of services by courts of juvenile jurisdiction (FINS – Families in Need of Services).  We are responsible for youth assigned to our care by the court system, either for supervision or custody in residential placement, or secure care. OJJ also provides services to youth under local court supervision.  Our staff supports the Administrative Remedy Procedure disciplinary appeal process for juveniles and performs quality assurance activities for the juvenile facilities.
