How does the JDU staff communicate with system partners?

The Unit attends roundtable meetings with the Juvenile Court Judge, the District Attorney’s Office, the Juvenile Probation Office, and various juvenile service providers to discuss ways to improve the system. The JDU also participates in the Luzerne County Juvenile Justice Task Force, the Disproportionate Minority Contact (DMC) law enforcement / youth training project, and has representation in local and state committees and agencies involving juvenile justice issues. We take an active role in voicing the collective needs of our clients to system partners whenever possible.
