Division Philosophy - The Balanced Approach

The Balanced & Restorative Justice Model is a philosophy of correctional care that emphasizes three equally important principles:

  1. Accountability

    When a crime occurs, a debt is incurred. Youth must be held accountable for their actions and to restore the victim’s losses. JJYS will be held accountable for the efficacy of services provided to youth.

  2. Competency development

    Offenders should leave the system more capable of productive participation in conventional society than when they entered.

  3. Community protection

    The public has a right to a safe and secure community. Youth also have the right to be safe while in the custody of the Division of Juvenile Justice and Youth Services.
