Community Safety through Positive Change
The Department of Community Justice (DCJ) serves a vital role in protecting our public safety and the strength of our communities. We intervene to prevent the recurrence of crime among juvenile and adult defendants and offenders by supervising them and getting them the help they need to change problem behavior. We provide supervision and treatment resources to youth, adults, families, and communities to address the underlying issues and problems that drive crime. Our efforts are guided by a range of supervision, technology, evidence-based strategies to maximize our resources and results.
