Law Enforcement and Department of Juvenile Justice: Partners in Successful Investigations

This presentation will discuss the roles law enforcement and state Juvenile Justice play in investigating crimes perpetrated by juveniles.  North Carolina’s Juvenile Justice Reinvestment Act, AKA “Raise the Age,” will be discussed and its effects on investigating crimes when juveniles are the victims/survivors and the suspects.  Attendees will learn how to collaborate with Juvenile Justice authorities to investigate suspects.  An overview of interventions provided includes clinical services and programs – and where to find resources when they are limited.
