Division of Juvenile Justice Consolidated in North Carolina

The North Carolina Department of Public Safety recently announced an end to its dedicated juvenile justice system. The elimination will result in terminating senior juvenile justice professional leaders, reassigning section leaders to become Division of Adult Corrections managers and renaming the entire entity as the Division of Adult Corrections and Juvenile Services. This realignment will increase efficiencies in upper management and administrative support, while maintaining critical field operations and enhancing preventive and support services, according to the Department of Public Safety (DPS).
