Juvenile Justice Compliance Monitoring

The Governor's Crime Commission is the designated state agency responsible for monitoring for compliance with the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDP Act). The authority to monitor the Core Requirements of the JJDP Act is found at N.C.G.S. § 143B-602(8)(d.), N.C.G.S. § 143B-1101(a)(3), N.C.G.S. § 143B-1103(b)(6) and (10).

Pursuant to 34 U.S.C. § 11133(a)(14), states must provide for an effective system of monitoring jails, lockups, detention facilities, correctional facilities, and other secure* facilities to ensure that the [first three of four] Core Requirements are met, and for annual reporting of the results of such monitoring to the OJJDP Administrator. 

*Secure facilities as defined under 28 C.F.R. § 31.304 (m) include construction features designed to physically restrict the movements and activities of persons in custody, such as locked rooms and buildings, fences, or other physical structures. Additional definitions for facility types can be found at 34 U.S.C. § 11103.

The Core Requirements are:

1.       Deinstitutionalization of Status Offenders;

2.       Jail Removal;

3.       Site and Sound Separation; and

4.       Racial and Ethnic Disparities.

NOTE: States do not monitor individual facilities for compliance with racial and ethnic disparities requirements.
