DJJ Data

California's state youth correctional system, the Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ), has a tumultuous history of violence, abuse, and neglect. For decades, CJCJ has committed to investigating the health and safety of youth at DJJ. Given these systemic issues, California will end most new admissions to DJJ beginning on July 1, 2021 and close all facilities over the next several years. CJCJ will continue providing the public with critical information on this  dangerous system until it finally closes.

Here you can find details on DJJ-related subjects (current and historical), which include youth population data,  facility conditions, programming, and COVID-19 testing, among many others. These reports also highlight the importance of community-based services to address the unique needs of California’s most vulnerable youth.
