Pennsylvania Juvenile Justice System Goals

Resources / Report / Pennsylvania Juvenile Justice System Goals

This brochure outlines Pennsylvania’s statutory juvenile justice system goals – community protection, offender accountability, and competency development. It also discusses the foundational White Papers, commissioned by the state, which explain each goal, present relevant research, and describe how the goal will be pursued. The White Papers themselves are available online from the National Center for Juvenile Justice.
