Policy, Legislation and Compliance Subcommittee

The Policy, Legislation and Compliance (PLC) Subcommittee is responsible to address the core requirements of the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDPA) and Wisconsin-specific policy and legislative changes needed to maintain compliance with the JJDPA. 

The JJDPA defines core requirements that must be monitored for compliance:

  • Deinstitutionalization of Status Offenders (DSO) Requirement 
  • Removing Juveniles Charged as Adults Requirement: Sect.223(a)(11)(B) in the Interest of Justice
  • Separation: Sight or Sound Separation of Juveniles from Adult Inmates Requirement (SS)
  • Jail Removal Requirement: Removal of Juveniles from Adult Jails and Lockups (JR)
  • Reduction of Racial and Ethnic Disparities (R/ED)

This subcommittee also develops policy and legislative recommendations for full-commission approval.
