Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Commission

The Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Commission (JJDPC) is a volunteer organization comprised of members who are residents within San Bernardino County. The JJDPC is a state mandated commission, established through the provisions of Sections 225 and 233 of the Welfare and Institutions Code. The commission consists of no less than seven and no more than 15 volunteer members, including two youth members. The commissioners are sworn in and appointed by the Presiding Juvenile Court Judge.

Commission members devote their time and energy to participate in coordinating activities designed to prevent juvenile delinquency. Each year, as mandated by the law, JJDPC Commissioners conduct annual inspections of facilities or areas where minors are temporarily detained. Commissioners also inspect the Juvenile Detention and Assessment Centers of the County.

Each Fall, an Annual Recognition of Service to Youth Awards ceremony is hosted by the JJDPC. This event provides recognition and acknowledgement of individuals, organizations, and corporations throughout San Bernardino County who have made significant contributions on behalf of our youth in the community.
