Responsible for insuring fiscal and programmatic management for juvenile detention and alternative to detention programs for Somerset County youth ages 12 -18. There are seven programs that operate out of this division:

  • Juvenile Detention for court-involved youth who require secure care.
  • Home Detention Program (HDP)** for court-involved youth who can safely return to the community with electronic monitoring.
  • Advanced House Arrest (AHA)** for lower risk court-involved youth who require some supervision in the community.
  • Juvenile Justice Intensive Case Management (JJICM)** for court-involved youth who need case management assistance in order to prevent secure placement or to reintegrate into the community after a period of secure care.
  • Advanced Station House Adjustment (ASHA) provides a community service program for youth who have committed a Disorderly Person (DP) offense, Petty Disorderly Persons (PDP) offense or who have been charged with an offense in the municipal court; and who have previously participated in a Station House Adjustment; with the goal of discouraging youth from re-offending and progressing further into the juvenile justice system.
  • QAL (Question & Answer Line) a resource line for families of youth who have had police and/or court contact:
