OJJ serves youth who have been adjudicated delinquent or Families in Need of Services (FINS). We are responsible for youth assigned to our care by the court system, either for supervision or custody in residential placement or secure care.
We have begun hiring for the Acadiana Center for Youth in Bunkie. Click the Working at OJJ link below for more information.
Statistical indicators intended to provide state and local stakeholders up-to-date pictures of youth who are committed to the care of OJJ. The indicator reports can be used in all areas of Louisiana juvenile justice planning to identify trends, make comparisons, and to facilitate information sharing regarding OJJ’s youth population.
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.
