Alaska has one of the best juvenile justice systems in the country. The Alaska Division of Juvenile Justice, within the Department of Health and Social Services, is at the forefront of a number of initiatives:
reducing disproportionate minority contact
implementing cutting-edge transitional services
for juveniles leaving secure treatment;
Aggression Replacement Training
for youth on probation and in juvenile facilities; and implementing quality assurance and
into aspects of our work with youth and families. These changes can be attributed to energetic leadership and an adaptable, capable staff that champions excellence and holds as core values responsiveness, accountability and objective decision-making.
