Youthful Offenders in Local Detention Facilities

The passage of Senate Bill 823 (SB 823) and the eventual closure of the state’s youth correctional facilities mean that local detention facilities may detain youthful offenders until they reach the age of full criminal responsibility (age 18 ) and in some cases, until the age of extended juvenile jurisdiction (age 25). Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) understands that agencies may have questions about the housing of youthful offenders in local detention facilities and has provided the following resources.

Status Offenders and Federal Youth (SOFY)

The Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) is California’s designated state agency responsible for monitoring compliance with the Federal Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Actopens PDF file  (JJDPA). The JJDPA is the only federal law that focuses on improving juvenile justice systems, while shaping how states deliver juvenile justice to youth and their communities.

 

Among its many key components, the JJDPA establishes federal minimum standards for the protection, safety, care, and treatment of all youth who have contact with juvenile justice systems. The BSCC uses two programs to monitor compliance of the Core Requirements; SOFY and Minors in Detention (found under the Youth in Adult Detention Facilities accordion). The SOFY programs focuses on data collection and on-site inspection of juvenile facilities in the State of California. Program surveys, forms, helpful links and resources for SOFY are located below.

Compliance Monitoring

The Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) is California’s designated state agency responsible for monitoring compliance with the Federal Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Actopens PDF file  (JJDPA). The JJDPA is the only federal law that focuses on improving juvenile justice systems, while shaping how states deliver juvenile justice to youth and their communities.

Among its many key components, the JJDPA establishes federal minimum standards for the protection, safety, care, and treatment of all youth who have contact with juvenile justice systems. These standards are commonly known as the JJDPA’s Core Requirements; Compliance Monitoring includes the following:

  1. Deinstitutionalization of Status Offenders (DSO)
  2. Separation
  3. Jail Removal

The BSCC uses two programs to monitor compliance of the Core Requirements; Minors in Detention (MID) and Status Offenders and Federal Youth (found under the Youth in Juvenile Detention Facilities accordion). The MID program focuses on data collection and on-site inspection of every facility in the State of California that is known to staff law enforcement. Program surveys, forms, helpful links and resources are located below.

The JPCF Program replaces the Comprehensive Youth Services Act, which provided federal dollars to county probation departments, beginning in 1997-99, through the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program. Counties used these federal dollars to fund services and programs across the continuum of options, from prevention/early intervention through custody.

All funds allocated to counties through the JPCF Program are intended to support the delivery of services authorized by the enabling legislation; there are 23 categories of services eligible for expenditures (Welfare and Institutions Code, Section 18221). The juvenile probation portion of this program is administered by the State Controller’s Office (SCO) while the camp funding portion of this program is administered by the Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC).

Camp Specific Funding Information by Fiscal Year (FY)

With the movement of funding in FY2012-13 to the Enhancing Law Enforcement Activities Subaccount (ELEAS) Local Revenue Fund, payments will be processed by the SCO via electronic funds transfer (EFT). In addition to the allotment spreadsheets found at the Camp Funding Disbursement link below, you can view allocation/remittance details on SCO’s website at: opens in a new windowhttp://www.sco.ca.gov/ard_payments_juvenileprobationcampfunding.html.

Beginning in FY2015-16, JPCF Camp Eligibility Forms will be required annually; payments will continue to be made on a monthly basis via EFT by the SCO.
