RALEIGH

A day-long conversation about the intersection of school safety, juvenile justice, law enforcement and the criminal justice system will take place in Cary this week, sponsored by the North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts and the Juvenile Justice Section of the Department of Public Safety.  

During this workshop on Wednesday, juvenile justice, education and law enforcement officials, along with judges, district attorneys, public defenders and juvenile program providers, will learn about school justice partnerships and be present as the NCAOC unveils its ”School Justice Partnership Implementation Toolkit.“ This resource contains guidance to assist judicial districts in developing individualized school justice partnership agreements, which are an important component of the “Raise the Age” legislation, or the Juvenile Justice Reinvestment Act of 2017.

Wednesday afternoon, the spotlight will be on school safety, to include mental health intervention strategies and a panel on the role of school resource officers in North Carolina schools.
