Purpose

The statewide Youth Justice Oversight Committee was established by the legislature in 2022 (see HEA 1359 or Ind. Code 2-5-36-9). The Chief Justice of Indiana is responsible for appointing members (see Supreme Court order). The committee's purpose is to: (1) Develop a plan to collect and report statewide juvenile justice data. (2) Establish procedures and policies related to the use of certain screening tools and assessments. (3) Develop a statewide plan to address the provision of broader behavioral health services to children in the juvenile justice system. (4) Develop a plan for the provision of transitional services for a child who is a ward of the department of correction. (5) Develop a plan for the juvenile diversion and community alternatives grant programs.

The committee will submit to the commission and the legislative council by July 1, 2023: (1) the plan for the juvenile diversion and community alternatives grant programs; and (2) the juvenile justice data collection plan and the plan for the use of screening tools, assessments, and services.
