Douglas County Juvenile Assessment Center (JAC)
The Douglas County Juvenile Assessment Center (JAC) is designed to serve as the focal point for comprehensive assessment and case management. The JAC Specialists assess the youth's risks and needs and provide the County Attorney with recommendations for services. All juveniles arrested or cited and released by law enforcement are scheduled for an appointment within a few weeks of the initial contact with law enforcement. By using earlier and more efficient prevention and intervention services at the front end of the system, the potential to impact lives of youth positively and divert them from the path of serious delinquency improves.
