Compliance Monitoring

The Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) is California’s designated state agency responsible for monitoring compliance with the Federal Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act (JJDPA). The JJDPA is the only federal law that focuses on improving juvenile justice systems, while shaping how states deliver juvenile justice to youth and their communities.

Among its many key components, the JJDPA establishes federal minimum standards for the protection, safety, care, and treatment of all youth who have contact with juvenile justice systems. These standards are commonly known as the JJDPA’s Core Requirements; Compliance Monitoring includes the following:

  1. Deinstitutionalization of Status Offenders (DSO)
  2. Separation
  3. Jail Removal

The BSCC uses two programs to monitor compliance of the Core Requirements; Minors in Detention and Status Offenders and Federal Youth. These programs focus on data collection and on-site inspection of every facility in the State of California that is known to staff law enforcement. Program surveys, forms, helpful links and resources are located below.
