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.
OJJ promotes a multidisciplinary approach to treating youth through a continuum of care. A unique service plan is developed for each youth in our custody or supervision.
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.
