San Francisco's DJJ Realignment Subcommittee is implementing the county's plan to support the needs of young people who were previously eligible for Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) commitments. Our plan is healing-centered, family-centered, community-connected, and culturally responsive.
The Juvenile Probation Department provides support, services, and supervision to youth and their families during their involvement with the juvenile justice system. We also operate the San Francisco Juvenile Justice Center, a secure residential facility for young people under the jurisdiction of the Juvenile Delinquency Court.
