NC-JOIN is the North Carolina Juvenile Online Information Network. As the name indicates, the network is a web-based system that allows staff at various points in the state's juvenile justice system to track the progress and placement of youth being served by various programs and facilities.
NC-JOIN places crucial information at the fingertips of court counselors, detention and youth development center staff throughout the state. NC-JOIN is also an asset to those who plan and evaluate programs and services. It has become an essential tool in providing the data necessary in making decisions on the appropriate use of scarce resources to help fund and direct services for youth involved in crime prevention and intervention efforts both at the state and local levels.
The Division of Adult Correction and Juvenile Justice recognizes the impact of Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC) in the juvenile justice system and is actively engaged in efforts to reduce its impact including:
- Identifying key factors that contribute to DMC in North Carolina
- Interviewing juvenile court counselors about the intake and decision-making process in court services
- Developing a critical decision points map that shows where DMC occurs
- Conducting workshops for Division staff to promote awareness and develop strategies to address DMC
- Updating work plans for Division staff to include language ensuring fair and equitable decision-making for all youth
