Our Goals


We are a Juvenile Court, and although protecting children is everyone’s responsibility, we must be the catalyst in rallying the entire community toward that end:

Our Goals


We are a Juvenile Court, and although protecting children is everyone’s responsibility, we must be the catalyst in rallying the entire community toward that end:

  • Provide for the protection of the community through just and speedy consequences.
  • Protect the abandoned, neglected, and abused; and assess and seek treatment for children in need
  • Be sensitive and responsive to individual victims and their families
  • Provide individualized justice for the offenders
  • Hold those accountable who fail to meet their obligations as parents, guardians, or custodians
  • Be a leader in the effective and cost-efficient utilization of community resources for the treatment of children and families
  • Demand high professional standards for ourselves and make every effort possible to demand the same standards from other governmental agencies and service providers
  • Strive to recognize and eliminate implicit bias and racial inequities
  • We must pursue these goals vigorously and honestly with the utmost respect for the right of all our citizens.
