Description of current programs offered by RJA: Juvenile Intake and Assessment Systems (JIAS) is a 24/7/365 day program that responds to law enforcement when a juvenile is arrested for a crime or processed as a child in need of care for abuse and/or neglect. JIAS conducts an assessment and assists law enforcement with placement and services for the youth processed. Juvenile Intensive Supervised Probation (JISP) monitors youth who have failed on regular probation or have been assessed as moderate to high risk. The Juvenile Supervision Officer (JSO) monitors court orders, arranges services that will best help the youth and family be successful within the community and reports the youth’s performance to the court. Youth returned home from a Juvenile Correctional Facility are also supervised on Conditional Release under JISP services. Conditional release youth are monitored very closely to ensure the youth receives needed services to reintegrate back into the community and promote public safety. Case Management (CM) monitors youth who have been placed in the custody of the KDOC-JS due to the youth’s behaviors and/or crimes committed. CM youth are removed from their home and placed in a foster home, group home, etc. until it is appropriate to return to the community. Clients placed in the custody of KDOC-JS are visited in their placement one time a month by RJA staff. Immediate Intervention Program (IIP) was developed as part of SB 367 to provide services and supervision to eligible youth in an effort to avoid prosecution. IIP youth are referred for services by the Crawford County Attorney’s Office for youth who meet the program criteria. Family Services/Support is for youth and families who are low risk and do not need intensive services but willing to accept service support. Family Support is for youth and families who are moderate to high risk and in need of more intensive/support and willing to participate in support services. Programming - RJA is offering a number of evidence based programs and services that focus on cognitive skills for youth with an offense. Contact RJA for more information.
