The Department of Community Corrections and Rehabilitation participates in the Juvenile Detention Alternatives Initiative along with its juvenile justice stakeholders. JDAI is a proven method of assigning the least restrictive community-based rehabilitative alternatives for low-risk offenders who do not pose a risk to public safety.
JDAI also addresses ethnic and racial disparities in the juvenile justice system and disproportionate minority confinement in detention facilities. Emphasis is placed on gathering and applying data in decision making. This requires a tremendous collaborative effort with the Juvenile Court, corrections, law enforcement, schools, child welfare, prosecution, legal defense, and community representatives.
We are currently going through some updates and maintenance of our website. To get more information about Hennepin County JDAI send us a message.
