Today’s speaker will be Brian Richart from our local JTC. The primary purpose of the JTC is to provide secure detention for minors coming under the jurisdiction of the Juvenile Court. Detention is defined as the temporary care of a minor in a secure setting pending Court Disposition or transfer to another jurisdiction. Although the primary purpose is to provide secure detention, the JTC provides activities and guidance to contribute to each minor’s social and personal development to enhance his/hers ability to function acceptably in the community. Counseling services are provided to the minors during detention to assist them in initiating the process of rehabilitation and developing positive life goals.
