Mission: To provide resources and programs for juvenile justice initiatives to the second judicial circuit.
Programs: The second circuit juvenile justice council has provided a forum for the development of a circuit-wide assessment of the local juvenile justice system. It has assisted with developing a circuit-wide juvenile justice plan and policies for the prevention and intervention of juvenile delinquency. It has coordinated the collection, compiling and dissemination of data within the circuit to be shared circuit-wide. It continues to make recommendations to the county committees and other local governing committees that results in more effective utilization of the existing community resources in dealing with juveniles who are found to be subject to the illinois juvenile court act. It has upgraded the juvenile justice data collection system and created new "juvenile action" circuit-wide form to be used by all law enforcement within the circuit.
