Prevention Programs


Prevention programs are designed to  reduce juvenile crime and protect public safety. Prevention programs, administered by local providers throughout the state, target high-risk juveniles and those who exhibit problem behaviors such as ungovernability, truancy, running away from home and other pre-delinquent behaviors.

Residential facilities are for youth who are required by a judge to stay in the care of the Department of Juvenile Justice for an extended time. There are facilities located throughout Florida. A youth's placement depends on the commitment plan, not on the location of the arrest. For help finding your child's facility, contact his or her JPO
