Law Enforcement Program

The Law Enforcement Program

The JAC’s Law Enforcement Program strives to intervene and address factors contributing to concerning behavior and increase aspects of a young person’s life that will help keep them at home and out of juvenile justice and human services systems. Intake and assessment services include: screening for immediate medical needs; screening for detention placement; behavioral health screening; assessment of risks, strengths and needs; case planning; release and short-term case management. 


Transports | Intake & Comprehensive Assessment

The Juvenile Assessment Center offers intake and assessment services to young people identified by law enforcement officers for behavior or delinquency matters. Officers may refer youth for a JAC assessment or transport directly to the Law Enforcement Program within the Arapahoe County Justice Center. Officers Click Here | Refer a Family for Assessment


SB94 | Preventing unnecessary detentions

Senate Bill 91-94 is a statewide collaborative effort which focuses on the appropriate placement of youth in the detention continuum. The Senate Bill 94 philosophy is based on the belief that not all youth require secure detention. The foundation of Senate Bill 94 is the partnership between state agencies and local organizations. Through the JAC’s contract with the 18th Judicial District Senate Bill 94 Program, the organization assesses young people for the most appropriate level of detention services. The JAC provides detention screening; temporary holding and after-hours detention bed management. Click Here | SB94 Program Information
