Policies & Procedures
Oregon is a participant in the 2018 Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDPA). Originally enacted in 1974 and reauthorized in 2018, the JJDP Act is intended to divert juveniles from the criminal justice system while at the same time providing core protections for those who do become engaged. These core protections are designed to do three things:
Deinstitutionalization – Prohibits placement in any secure residential facility unless first accused or charged with an offense that would be criminal if committed by an adult under local state law (minus certain exceptions);
Separation – Prohibits any contact between juveniles (17 and under), and “adult inmates"(18 and over) in custody at any secure facility for either juveniles or adults;
Jail Removal – Prohibits the detainment or confinement of juveniles in any secure facility for adults unless first charged with an offense that would be criminal if committed by an adult, and limits the amount of time that a juvenile can be detained or confined by up to six hours.
All secure facilities must comply with at least Separation, while only those facilities which are both secure and residential must comply with Deinstitutionalization. Jail Removal applies only to facilities for adults where a juvenile has been “detained or confined." Any facility classified as either an Adult Jail or Lockup, or a Juvenile Detention or Correctional facility, must certify compliance at least once annually through the submission of data that either: A. Illustrates compliance of juveniles detained or confined in custody with respect to the applicable core requirements, or B. Illustrates that no juveniles were detained or confined in custody with respect to the facility-type.
The Youth Development Division (YDD) serves as Oregon's Designated State Agency (DSA) for the purpose of receiving, and administering Title II award funds from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP).
Oregon Revised Statute (ORS) 417.850 authorizes the Youth Development Division to perform its duties as required under 34 U.S.C. § 11133 by collecting data, and inspecting facilities in which juveniles are detained.
The compliance monitor is responsible for ensuring that law enforcement, court, and facility personnel understand and follow the regulatory standard established through Oregon's participation in the JJDPA. If you have any questions regarding this information or what is expected from your agency, department or office for compliance, please contact:
