Mission Statement

The Juvenile Justice/Delinquency Prevention Commission of Alameda County is a state-mandated, court-appointed authority. The general purpose of the Commission is to inquire into the administration of the juvenile court law in this county in order to ensure that the rights or physical, mental or moral welfare of children are not violated or threatened by their present circumstances or environment. The Commission is dedicated to the promotion of an effective juvenile justice system operated in an environment of credibility, dignity, fairness, and respect for the youth, their families, and their communities.

The Commission’s responsibilities include:

  • Annual inspections of juvenile facilities including any jail or lockup shelters within the County, and detention facilities and group homes used for the confinement and/or placement of any minor in Alameda County;
  • Conducting public or closed hearings on matters relating to juvenile law in the County; and
  • Advocating for youth and needed services for youth in the justice system.
 

Meetings

Regular Commission meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month from 12-2pm at the Juvenile Justice Center, Room C1002, 2500 Fairmont Drive, San Leandro, CA 94578.
