Reporting Sexual Abuse or Sexual Harassment
All reports of sexual abuse or sexual harassment will be investigated and addressed. Youth, employees, and third parties can report incidents of sexual abuse or sexual harassment in verbal or written formats. All parties can file a report with the Office of Juvenile Justice by calling the Investigative Services hotline at 1-800-626-1430. Reporters can remain anonymous or provide contact information in the event more information is needed.

LA Coordinated System of Care

Regional Service Area Map

Community Services

The Office of Juvenile Justice is divided into three service regions, each with a regional director, stationed in close proximity to secure care facilities and field offices, who supervises both the secure care facilities and the regional Probation and Parole Field Offices in their respective region.
This organizational structure allows for direct daily oversight in the field by an executive level supervisor.  Because one person manages both facility based and community based services,  OJJ experiences more cohesion of staff and better integrated services, more of a continuum of services for youth and families, more accountability of all employees and greater leadership development of line staff.

The regions are:

  • Northern Service Area:  Monroe, Shreveport, Tallulah, Swanson Center for Youth in Monroe and Swanson Center for Youth at Columbia   
  • Southeastern Service Area: Baton Rouge, Hammond, New Orleans, Thibodaux, Bridge City Center for Youth
  • Central/Southwestern Service Area: Lafayette/Opelousas, Lake Charles, Natchitoches, Alexandria, Ware Youth Center’s contracted services, and Acadiana Center for Youth in Bunkie, which is currently under construction.

Youth Services recognizes that in order to serve our youth more effectively and efficiently, we must  move toward a regionalized approach to treatment.  To that end, we have proposed creating three regional service areas.  These regional service areas are called Northern, Southeastern and Southwestern.  Each service area will establish and maintain a basic continuum of services.  Youth Services will work with each community and planning board to expand the continuum of care in each of these regions.
