Sacramento County JJCC Subcommittee - DJJ Realignment
In September 2020, Senate Bill 823 was signed into law. The signing of this bill initiates the closure of the California Department of Rehabilitation Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) and shifts those resources to counties to supervise and deliver services to youth who are in conflict with the law. Senate Bill 823 tasks each county with the responsibility of creating a local DJJ Realignment Plan.
The Sacramento County Juvenile Justice Coordinating Council (JJCC) is responsible for establishing the JJCC Subcommittee, which is tasked with the development of Sacramento County's SB 823 DJJ Realignment Plan (per Welfare and Institutions Code 1995).
The JJCC Subcommittee hosts Community Workshops to educate the public about SB 823 DJJ Realignment and encourage community participation in the JJCC Subcommittee. The SB 823 DJJ Realignment Community Workshops are conducted virtually to adhere to local and state public health mandates and guidelines.
